RED BANK, NJ: As the saying goes, “You gotta break a lot of eggs to make an omelet.”
While they are busting up the old concrete and asphalt pavement on the White Street parking lot, a lot of progress is being made.
A foreman, who did not wish to be named, from general contractor Shore Top Construction said, “The curbs are about 50% done, we’ve got the storm drains to install and grading and milling of the road should begin in about two weeks.”
TAPinto Red Bank watched the in-ground installation of the 500+ pound concrete bollards where the parking lot light fixtures will be bolted on top. Look closely at the carousel of pictures and you’ll see where the conduit for the electric feed wires pass through.

“The contractor is ripping out all the concrete curbing which will be shifted over and readjusted. Milling and paving will be done in different sections so that we can maintain parking,” said Borough Business Administrator Ziad “Z” Shehady at a recent Red Bank Business Alliance meeting,
During snowstorms we’ve all seen the “mini-mountains” that the snow plows create. “We’re looking to put in an electric heating pad on one side of the parking lot so we can melt the snow, to keep those spaces open. We’re looking at a final completion of the parking lot, hopefully, by October 30,” added Shehady.
