Railroad-crossing repairs begins this week
on Arnold Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach

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 the closure and detour of Arnold Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach, Ocean County.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, October 26, until 7 p.m. Thursday, November 2, the two-way traffic on Arnold Avenue is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing intersection between Route 35 northbound/Cincinnati Avenue and Cooks Lane. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach. The following detours will remain in place:

Arnold Avenue eastbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling eastbound on Arnold Avenue will be directed onto Route 35 southbound/Richmond Avenue
  • Make a left onto Atlantic Avenue
  • Make a left onto Chicago Avenue
  • Follow to Arnold Avenue

Arnold Avenue westbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling westbound on Arnold Avenue will be directed south on Chicago Avenue   
  • Make a right onto Atlantic Avenue
  • Make a right onto Route 35 northbound/Cincinnati Avenue
  • Follow to Arnold Avenue

    The detour will be coordinated with the local police.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossings in Point Pleasant Beach, 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 weather or 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.
