Concept Development Study for Operational Safety Improvements to County Route 52 (South Laurel Avenue), Holmdel and Middletown

Monmouth County is currently advancing a Concept Development (CD) Study for improvements to South Laurel Avenue from Commons Way to AT&T Drive in the Townships of Holmdel and Middletown, Monmouth County. The purpose of the CD Study is to identify the Purpose and Need for the proposed improvements and then develop conceptual alternatives that can be compared in order to determine one which may be recommended to advance as a Preliminary Preferred Alternative (PPA). Alternatives will be developed to improve the vertical clearance under the NJ Transit Bridge; alleviate the existing hourglass configuration, improve pedestrian and bikeway accessibility along South Laurel Avenue; address the condition of and impacts to existing Bridges H-9, H-35, H-35A and H-43 which carry S. Laurel Avenue over four unnamed tributaries of the Mahoras Brook; and minimize potential NJ Transit service interruptions during construction. The improvements will strive to minimize environmental, quality of life, access, right of way and utility impacts in the study area. The existing stream crossing structures will be evaluated for either replacement or culvert extensions.
