Bridge Repairs Approved
It's going to cost over $800,000 to repair the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge.
The span was a casualty of superstorm Sandy after the storm caused significant erosion to its supports. Officials say the surge washed away 10-foot-deep sections of soil on the Rumson side that had protected the timber piles that support the bridge.
The Monmouth County Freeholders gave the okay for repairs at a recent meeting.
