Wednesday, March 16, 2011
A major roadway resurfacing project, sponsored by the state Department of Transportation (DOT), will begin next week to improve two sections of Route 36 in Monmouth County, including spans in and through Middletown. One section of the work will be in the Borough of Sea Bright, while the other area of the highway to be resurfaced covers the townships of Hazlet and Middletown and the boroughs of Keansburg and Union Beach.
