Looks like road construction is coming to downtown Toms River beginning next week and this could mean some slowdowns on Main and Water Streets.

Now I am not completely sure what the construction is, possible water piping, but the point here is regardless of the nature of the work, the work will cause some slow downs. According to the road signs, it may lead to road closures there downtown along Water Street. Obviously a “closure” would mean detours and added travel time. I wanted to post this “heads up” just to alert you to the work, which according to the road signs, says beginning on or around Tuesday, June 1st as we get back to work following the long Memorial Day Weekend.

So just keep this reminder in your head in case we see detours and/or closures so you can make plans to get where you are going on time. Lots of traffic flows through the area in Downtown Toms River around Main Street and Washington Street. If we get updates and additional information we will be sure to pass the details along to you.
