During this time period of construction upcoming, Navesink River Road will be closed and detoured on and off for about two weeks -- from January 23 to February 5 and then again in early April under the same circumstances with road closures and detours.

All in all, the project is set to be finished by the end of May.

“The construction of the roadway improvements will occur in three stages to avoid unnecessary delays and disruptions to the area,” Monmouth County Commissioner Director Tom Arnone, liaison to the Public Works & Engineering Department, said in a written statement. “We appreciate residents' and visitors’ patience as this project begins and remind all vehicular traffic to follow the arranged detours.”
