Railroad-crossing repairs begin this week on
Corlies Avenue in Allenhurst
Necessary safety work will require road closure and detours
(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require a week long closure and detour of Corlies Avenue in Allenhurst, Monmouth County.
Beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday, May 4, until 7p.m. Thursday, May 11, the two-way traffic on Corlies Avenue is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between Main Street and Lake Drive. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach. The following detours will remain in place:
Corlies Avenue westbound Detour
- Corlies Avenue westbound traffic will be directed to take Main Street southbound
- Make a right at the circle onto Grassmere Avenue
- Make another right onto Westra Street/Monmouth Road and follow to Corlies Avenue
Corlies Avenue eastbound Detour
- Corlies Avenue eastbound traffic will be directed to take Westra Street/Monmouth Road southbound
- Make a left onto Grassmere Avenue
- Make another left at the circle to take Main Street northbound and follow to Corlies Avenue
The traffic detours will be coordinated with the local police. If work is completed earlier, the roadway will be reopened accordingly.
In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossing in Allenhurst, the existing crossings will be replaced with new concrete crossings and new asphalt approaches. This federally-funded project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which repairs, upgrades, or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weatheror 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.
