Repairs on a Garden State Parkway bridge that was damaged in a traffic accident last November are expected to cause traffic delays in Middletown starting tomorrow morning, April 27 at 10 a.m. through 5 a.m. on Monday morning, April 30.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority will be closing two northbound lanes on the GSP between exit 109 and exit 114 to make repairs on the bridge over Middletown-Lincroft Road in order to make permanent repairs to the structure.
Monmouth County will close Middletown-Lincroft Road (CR-50) between West Front Street and Nutswamp/Dwight Road starting at 10 a.m. on Friday. One-way traffic for school only vehicles will be permitted on Friday afternoon from 2p.m.-4p.m.
Weather and progress permitting, Middletown-Lincroft Road will reopen on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m.
“The County Public Works and Engineering Department is working closely with the New Jersey Turnpike Authority in order to ensure the Authority can complete the necessary repairs to their bridge,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Monmouth County Public Works and Engineering Department. “We completely understand that road closures can be disruptive to motorists but rest assured these measures are being taken in order to provide a safe traveling environment for drivers and a protected work zone for the engineering crews.”
