OCEANPORT: A large portion of Oceanport Avenue has been closed to traffic after a water main break at County Bridge S-25.
The road was closed from Tuesday morning, Feb. 3, until 2 p.m. and will close again on Wednesday, Feb. 4.
A release from the county states that the road will likely be closed between Silverside Avenue in Little Silver and Main Street in Oceanport from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. as New Jersey American Water Company performs emergency repair work. Motorists should expect alternating lanes of travel while the work is being completed.
Detours will be posted on Oceanport Avenue for travelers.
"This emergency work is being performed to maintain the water service," Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County's Department of Public Works and Engineering said in a release. "We appreciate the patience of the traveling public while the work is performed to make these necessary repairs."
