Built in 1950, the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge is “approaching the end of its useful life” as stated on RumsonSeaBrightBridge.com.

Monmouth County has been awarded an additional $31 million in federal funding for the replacement of the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge.

“We are finalizing our contract documents to replace a current, movable bridge with a new, movable bridge structure relocated to the south and anticipate being ready for construction by the end of this year,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone.

The entire bridge replacement will be federally funded in the amount of $104 million.

According to the bridge website, “Monmouth County, in coordination with [the] North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, New Jersey Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, is advancing the bridge replacement design that maintains this important transportation link for the local communities and the region that also serves as a coastal evacuation route.”
