Getting to Wegman’s is going to get trickier for the next 16 months.
Monmouth County has released details regarding the specific east and westbound detours that will be implemented during the 16-month project to replace Sunset Bridge (connecting Asbury Park and Wanamassa).
“Monmouth County anticipates instituting the road closure and detour on or about Thursday, January 29,” Laura Kirkpatrick told TheBPlot late Friday. “Unfortunately, the road will be closed for Summer 2015 however it will be reopened to traffic prior to Memorial Day 2016.”
