SEVEN BRIDGES ROAD DETOURS TO BEGIN

Monmouth County officials were expected to shut down Seven Bridges Road (seen above from Rumson Road) Monday to allow for the $2.7 million reconstruction of a small, timber bridge on Seven Bridges Road just north of the Little Silver Point Road intersection.

The project calls for detours (shown in the map above) that are expected to be in place for up to six months, according the the county engineer’s office. (Click to enlarge)

LIGHTS ON IN LITTLE SILVER

New flashing amber and red lights at White Road and Branch Avenue in Little Silver joined a pair at Rumson Road and Branch, in foreground above, over the weekend.

The new signals are to remain in place for the duration of a bridge rebuilding project on Seven Bridges Road and resulting detour, at right, which are expected to begin after July 4 and last at least six months, Monmouth County officials say.  (Click to enlarge)
