A water main break on Oceanport Ave at the County Bridge S-25 has caused an emergency closure between Silverside Ave in Little Silver and Main St. in Oceanport, according to a statement released by the Monmouth County Department of Tourism and Public Information.
Tricia Ring Wadja of the Information Office told MMM that the bridge will reopen today at 2PM and will be open with an alternate lane traffic feed tomorrow, February 4.
New Jersey American Water Company is performing the emergency repair work, which is expected to be completed tomorrow afternoon.
Motorists on Oceanport Ave are urged to follow the posted detours.
“This emergency work is being performed to maintain the water service,” said Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. “We appreciate the patience of the traveling public while the work is performed to make these necessary repairs.”
