OCEAN TOWNSHIP: Construction work to replace the Sunset Avenue Bridge has reached the halfway mark, according to Monmouth County Freeholder Thomas Arnone.
Sunset Avenue connects Asbury Park and Ocean Township via a bridge at Deal Lake. Work on the project began in January and work has been progressing over the last year.
"To date, the piers and the abutments are complete, and all the beams have been set," Arnone announced in his latest newsletter. "The contractor is currently constructing the wing walls and started to set forms for the new deck."
The bridge is expected to be complete by May 27, 2016.
The cost of construction is approximately $7,444,447. The project is being federally funded.
