Closures begin tonight on a portion of a major roadway in Marlboro Township. Monmouth County officials say Newman Springs Road, also known as County Route 520, will be closed from Route 34 to the intersection of Conover and Boundry roads  starting at 9 p.m. Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday.

Emergency pump-out work is taking place at a small culvert under Newman Springs Road.

They say motorist traveling east on Newman Springs will be detoured south on Boundry Road to Crine Road to Dutch Lane Road, turning left onto Conover Road and returning to State Highway 34.

Officials say next week, work will begin to replace the culvert. The road will not need to be closed for that phase of work.
