Ocean County Spring, Summer Paving Set

Drivers who frequent almost 10 miles of heavily-traveled Ocean County roads in Toms River, Lakewood, Barnegat, Beachwood and Jackson can expect fewer bumps and jostles by summer’s end.

County Freeholders are setting aside $2,700,000 for repaving projects in the five townships. “It’s part of our ongoing road maintenance program,” says Engineering Liaison John Kelly. Ocean County’s 620 miles of road and 259 bridges and culverts is the largest system of any county in New Jersey.

Each road will undergo milling to remove two top inches, to be replaced with the same amount of overlay.

The projects begin as the New Jersey Turnpike Authority begins lane-realignment and bridge replacement between Toms River and Wall township, and a lengthy bridge replacement on Jamaica Boulevard in Berkeley Township nears completion.

Included in the contract are:

  • Toms River – New Hampshire Avenue from Church Road to North Maple Avenue.
  • Toms River – Bay Lea Road from Hooper Avenue to Old Freehold Road.
  • Lakewood – New Hampshire Avenue from Chestnut Street to Oak Avenue, and from Pine Street to Route 88.
  • Jackson – West County Line Road from Route 9 to Pawnee Road.
  • Barnegat – Bay Shore Drive from Route 9 to Ridgeway Street.
  • Barnegat – Gunning River Road from Route 9 to Barnegat Boulevard.
  • Beachwood – Berkeley Avenue from Pinewald Road to Bowline Street.
