MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ: Expect delays and detours next week at the Oceanic Bridge. Beginning Monday, Sept. 9th through Friday, Sept. 13th, the Monmouth County Bridge Division will be performing routine maintenance and test lifts to the Oceanic Bridge between 9 am and 2:30 pm. The bridge between Middletown and Rumson will open more than usual and remain open for 10 to 15 minutes at a time, not allowing drivers to pass through--best to avoid this area if possible. Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes.
