Route 36 repaving in Sea Bright scheduled to start Monday night
Before next week arrives, drivers accustomed to parking overnight on a stretch of Route 36 (Ocean Avenue) in Sea Bright should plan on parking elsewhere. There'll be a whole lot of repaving going on.
New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today disclosed that the nearly mile-and-a-half project will extend, in both directions, between Rumson Road (County Route 520), at the base of the Shrewsbury River Bridge, and Sunrise Way.
Milling and paving is scheduled to take place between 8 PM and 6 AM, weeknights, starting October 9 and continuing for about a week.
The project will reduce the highway to one lane of alternating traffic, managed by flag operators and supported by signs, cones and reflective "Jersey barrier" barrels.
Drivers moving through the zone during daylight hours will see upgrades for curb inlets taking place, but NJDOT says it will have no affect on traffic flow.
