The following announcement was provided by the Lakewood Police Department:
On or about January 24, 2017 the New Jersey American Water Company will be installing a new water main on Route #88 to replace the current one to provide better service to the community.
The project will start at the railroad tracks just east of Monmouth / Railroad Avenues and continue east towards the Ocean County Park.
The project is expected to be completed in May of 2017 and will be installed during the evening hours of 8:00 pm to 6:00am to lessen the impact and inconvenience to the community.
During the project, only the immediate area of construction will close Rt. #88, but a detour has been set up for all wide loads, tractor trailers, transit buses and non local traffic to avoid the area via a bypass of South Clifton Avenue to Cedarbridge Avenue to New Hampshire Avenue back onto Route #88.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to Traffic Safety Officer Alex Guzman @ at 732.363.0200 ext. 5321
