Brielle’s Fisk Avenue Closed, Railroad Crossing to be Replaced


TRENTON, NJ — Fisk Avenue in Brielle is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between Brielle Avenue and Perry Place from Thursday, June 1 to Friday, June 9. A temporary walkway will allow for pedestrian and cyclist traffic.
