Nine bridges along Routes 13, 35 and 88
in Ocean, Middlesex and Monmouth counties
will receive preventative maintenance
(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a preventative bridge maintenance project that will make repairs to nine bridges along Routes 13, 35, and 88 in Ocean, Monmouth, and Middlesex counties.
To help extend the service life of these bridges, NJDOT will be performing different levels of bridge maintenance work at each location including deck patching, curb repair, expansion joint reconstruction, header reconstruction, sidewalk repair, deck crack repairs, cleaning of drainage systems, power washing, and application of a corrosion inhibitor.
Work also will be performed below each structure, including repairs to abutment walls and piers, epoxy waterproofing, and lubrication of bearings. The project is expected to complete in the summer of 2019.
Work on Monday through Friday will be restricted to off-peak hours, mid-morning to mid-afternoon, or overnight hours. Alternating traffic may be necessary for some local roads, maintaining one travel lane with traffic controlled by flagmen. All lanes will be maintained during peak period commuting hours and on weekends. Work will not take place on more than two bridges concurrently.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
