Part of Newman Springs Road in Lincroft Closed till 4pm Today

Expect overnight delays next week between Monday night and Thursday morning

520 and Jumping Brook LincroftNewman Springs Road (County Road 520) between Harvey Ave and Jumping Brook Road, which is west of Garden State Parkway Exit 109 in Lincroft, is closed today until 4pm today due to construction by a private company installing a sanitary sewer system for a housing development.

The project will continue on Monday, December 15 at night between the hours of 9pm and 5am.  It is scheduled to be completed by 5am on Thursday December 18.  Only the eastbound lane of the road will be closed at that time, according to a statement from the Monmouth County Department of Public Information and Tourism.

“The County understands the inconvenience of this closure and has instructed the contractor that they cannot completely close this County road, after today, during business hours,” said Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering. “For the safety of those working on the project and the motoring public, the road must be closed today, but it will be open by 4 p.m. This change will provide some relief to the traveling public and the local business community.”

    Granted these closings have been an incredible hardship on such a small town, to say nothing of the revenue lost by local businesses right before Christmas. But today, all traffic was blocked to parents trying to pick up their children from Lincroft Elementary School. Children are usually released unsupervised from the building and there was no way to get over there today. When we finally parked in lots several blocks away, we then had to cross children across a State Road with no police or crossing guard! I had always understood that that was a big no-no here. Definitely not safe and scary that you can’t get to your children. This seemed to be very poor planning.
