Asbury Park has issued an update about the rescheduling of the ongoing roadwork on Main Street.
Originally planned to begin Oct. 19 the project is now set to begin Fri. Oct. 26 when southbound lanes of Main Street/Route 71 will be closed for work from Asbury Avenue to Deal Lake Drive.
Traffic in both directions will be accommodated via lane shifts. Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Work on the southbound side of the street will take approximately six weeks and should be completed by early December before closures are switched to the northbound side.
Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times with the exception of when work on the sidewalk in front of the business is being done. Driveway access to businesses will be maintained at all times with the exception of when work on the driveway apron is being done.
Rolling closures of intersections at Main Street will be conducted over this timeframe. Intersection closures will most likely take three days per intersection.
