Rumson Borough 2021 West River Road Project
The Borough of Rumson proposes the removal and replacement of concrete curbs, sidewalks, driveway aprons, and ADA accessible curb ramps along West River Road (County Route 10) from Third Street to Bingham Avenue. The scope of work is consistent with the prior phases of improvements completed on East River Road between Ridge Road and Bingham Avenue.
The plan is to generally replace what currently exists with upgrades in accordance with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) accessibility standards. The Borough of Rumson was awarded multiple New Jersey Department of Transportation Municipal Aid grants to offset a majority of the project costs.
Monmouth County has committed to resurfacing West River Road after the Borough's project is complete. A paving schedule from Monmouth County has not been finalized at this time.
Lancha Construction was awarded the project based on their submission of the lowest, most responsive bid. The Borough has worked with Lancha Construction on other projects, most recently the Phase I & II improvements on East River Road. The work is currently scheduled to start on/or about Monday, June 14, 2021 with the installation of storm water drainage piping along the north curb line between Victory Park and Third Street. This phase of the project is anticipated to take four (4) weeks.
The next phase of the project is New Jersey American Water Company's (NJAW) replacement of the existing water main between Bingham Avenue and Harrison Street in Red Bank. NJAW has committed to complete the work which coincides with the Borough's project limits within a two (2) month timeframe. The balance of their project will be completed over several months.
After NJAW completes their phase of work, Lancha Construction will begin the replacement of curbs, sidewalks, driveway aprons, and ADA ramps.
During times of active construction, detours and full/partial road closures will be in place. Through traffic will be detoured around the project area with access for local traffic to residences and businesses maintained as safely as practical. Some full road closures will be required immediately where the Contractor is working, which may intermittently impact access to your home or business. All detours and closures will be coordinated with the Rumson Police Department.
