TODAY: Beginning today, September 30th, Ocean County and Walter R. Earle will begin the final phase of road reconstruction of Sunset Road. September 30th, October 1st, and October 2nd are reserved for curb and sidewalk restoration. The week of October 5th is reserved for the complete removal and replacement of the road surface of Sunset Road from James Street to Central Avenue (Rt. 528). Beginning October 5th and continuing through October 6th and 7th, Sunset Road will be closed to all but local traffic only. Local traffic only refers to those persons who live on Sunset Road. Motorists who travel Sunset Road as transient will find a posted detour using Central Avenue (Rt. 528), Cross Street and James Street. Also available will be James Street and Route 9 as a bypass around the construction.
During the road closure a significant portion of the road surface and roadbed will be removed in order to make way for the new road surface. For this reason Sunset Road will be closed continuously (24 hours) beginning Monday October 5th at 8:00 AM through Wednesday October 7th, approximately 4:00 PM.
This is a significant road surface reconstruction project. Delays should be expected and motorists are urged to stay away from the construction zone.
Every effort will be made to reduce any inconvenience this project may have. However, motorists and residents must allow the contractor access to this area in order to complete the work.
Uniformed police officers will be posted to the work zone to assist motorists and maintain security of the work zone.
