Route 35 Cooper's Bridge Replacement Project
Linking Technology and Tradition for Two Monmouth County Communities
The construction on this project has been completed
The Route 35 Coopers Bridge over the Navesink River, which connects the Borough of Red Bank with the Township of Middletown, is being replaced
with a completely new bridge.
Built in 1925, the original bridge has had no major reconstruction in its 73 years of use and has been determined to be structurally deficient
and functionally obsolete.
The new structure, designed by the New Jersey Department of Transportation and currently under construction, will bridge this gap. Providing a
safe, attractive transportation link in Monmouth County, the new Route 35 Coopers Bridge will feature a design that meets the functional needs of
steadily growing vehicular traffic. Equally important, the design meets the aesthetic needs of the distinctive and historic surrounding
With field construction underway since July 1998, the new bridge will be open for traffic by July 1, 2000.
We invite you to peruse this web site for information on the new Route 35 Coopers Bridge, the bridge construction program, and other answers to
questions you may have.
Traffic Advisory and Construction Activity will be updated monthly.
