Ocean County will reconstruct and resurface a portion of Herbertsville Road later this year, officials have announced.
The busy county road in the northern portion of Brick will be improved from the Monmouth County border to Lanes Mill Road, the county said in a statement.
Herbertsville Road is one out of seven roads county-wide to be resurfaced as part of a larger project that also includes roads in Toms River, Jackson and Long Beach Township. In all, 5.75 miles of roads will be replaced.
All of the roads will be milled and resurfaced with new signage added, Freeholder Jack Kelly said. As part of the resurfacing, pedestrian sidewalk ramps will be upgraded to meet the latest federal Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, he added.
Additionally, stormwater inlet grates will be replaced with bicycle-safe grates that also meet state Department of Environmental Protection water quality standards.
Work on all seven roads should be completed by the late summer or early fall, said Freeholder Deputy Director James F. Lacey.
