In the meantime, I would like to provide an update of different projects and initiatives taking place throughout Monmouth County.

As of yesterday, Monday January 20th, the Ocean Avenue Shark River Bridge (W-43) has been closed for emergency repairs.

The contract for the project was awarded to Cornell & Company, Inc. of Woodbury, NJ in the amount of $494,000.
