Filling in Between the Lines
Road work is ongoing all throughout downtown Red Bank.
Good, you might say. Get it all of out the way now.
All throughout downtown Red Bank roadwork is currently being undertaken. On Monmouth Street Thursday afternoon, crews were filling the sidewalk in front of the empty lot that will someday house a condo complex, while just down the street at the Rocar building workers were removing a glass sidewalk in order to replace it with one of those plain old concrete and brick ones.
On Front Street, work on a major roadway upgrade has been under way for more than a month and continues each day. The plan calls for widening the street, installing an elevated intersection at Broad and Front to help slow vehicles down and make pedestrian travel safer, and adding additional signage among other fixes.
Just a couple of weeks ago Monmouth Street was repaved from Broad Street to Maple Avenue as part of street scape projected, just around the same time as St. Peters Place was getting a much-needed repaving.
Too much too soon? Or better to get it all out of the way now?
