Route 35 Between Keyport and Laurence Harbor to Get Much Needed Facelift

NJ DOT issued a news release on Thursday announcing its FY 2012 budget for capital improvements to transportation infrastructure. Be sure to note that one-third of the transportation funding is federal. If you look through the state's Monmouth County projects, you will find two notable local projects:
  • Project 177A - Route 35, Greenwood Drive to Prospect Avenue involves roadway rehabilitation, widening, drainage, safety improvements, improvements to four intersections along Route 35 between Laurence Harbor and Keyport, as well as the replacement of a culvert. ($19,647,000)
  • Project NS9811 - County Route 6 Bridge (MA-14) involves the replacement of the existing Amboy Avenue bridge over Matawan Creek between Aberdeen and Keyport. The existing bridge is structurally deficient due to ongoing deterioration of the protective coating on the majority of its structural steel components. It is also deemed functionally obsolete. ($2,000,000)
