Oceanic Bridge To Close Jan. 7

Monmouth County officials say the Oceanic Bridge will be closed for three weeks starting Jan. 7 to upgrade the bridge’s safety systems.

The bridge spans the Navesink River connecting Rumson and Middletown, but during the project, all vehicle traffic will be diverted east or west.

Freeholder Deputy Director Thomas Arnone says drivers should use the signed detours and anticipate travel delays during the three weeks.

All traffic on Bingham Avenue (CR-8) between Rumson and Middletown will be detoured west, through Fair Haven and Red Bank to Middletown, or east, through Sea Bright and Highlands to Middletown.

Northbound traffic from Rumson on Bingham Avenue (CR-8) should take East River Road (CR-10) to East Front Street to Route 35 North to Navesink River Road (CR-12A) in Middletown.

Southbound traffic from Middletown should detour west on Navesink River Road (CR-12A) to Route 35 South in Red Bank.  And then will follow detour signs to travel west on East Front Street (CR10)/ East River Road through Fair Haven and into Rumson.

For more detour options, visit the Monmouth County website.

The bridge will be open to marine traffic during the project. The work is expected to conclude Jan. 28.
