Officials have announced a number of road closures that will begin Monday due to the ongoing project to reconstruct Route 35.
The most significant closure that will affect Brick residents and commuters as a whole will begin Thursday, April 16, when the highway between Princeton Avenue in Mantoloking to Brick’s Curtis Point development will be paved during the day, with alternating traffic in effect. Likewise, on Friday, Osborne Avenue in Bay Head to Princeton Avenue in Mantoloking will be paved at night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., and all Rt. 35 traffic will be re-routed to the side streets with assistance from local police.
Several closures of side streets in Mantoloking will also take place this week. On Monday, Lyman Avenue in Mantoloking from the bay to the highway will be closed to through traffic. Residents and contractors will have to use Bergen Avenue to access areas north of Lyman and Herbert Street to access areas south of Lyman, according to the Mantoloking Fire Department.
Downer Avenue in Mantoloking will also be paved on Monday, borough officials said. Residents and contractors will have to use Herbert Street to access areas north of Downer and Princeton Avenue to access areas south of Downer. Anyone wishing to go to the post office will have to use Princeton Avenue and park on Bay Avenue, then walk using the sidewalk.
The borough’s fire trucks will be parked on Bay across from the tennis courts. There will be no access onto Downer from Route 35, according to officials.
