Freeholder Director Tom Arnone Meeting
The East End Ave Bridge which connects Neptune City with the Shark River Hills section of Neptune Township will be closed next Weds., August 15 from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. while faulty pavement is repaired.
The bridge was closed for 8 months, October 2017 through May of this year, for a $3.5 million refurbishment project.
“Shortly after the pavement was installed by the contractor, County Engineers performed an inspection that found defects in the pavement surface,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering. “After witnessing this myself and getting questions from local residents, it was my plan to bring all parties together to remediate and correct this issue.”
“I have worked with County Engineers to construct a remediation plan to have the contractor correct the unacceptable work,” added Director Arnone. “We apologize for the inconvenience to our residents, but Monmouth County will not tolerate substandard work.”
The project, which was funded primarily through the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund, was originally completed by State Line Construction Company of Newark, NJ.
