The Borough of Rumson proposes the removal and replacement of concrete curbs, sidewalks, driveway aprons, and ADA accessible curb ramps along East River Road (County Route 10) from Black Point Road to Bingham Avenue. The scope of work is consistent with the prior phase of improvements completed on East River Road between Ridge Road and Black Point Road.

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 a New Jersey Department of Transportation Municipal Aid grant to offset a majority of the project costs.

Monmouth County has committed to resurfacing East 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 improvements on East River Road and Ridge Road.

The work is currently scheduled to start on/or about Monday, May 11, 2020 at the Black Point Road end of the project. Based on the initial project schedule submitted by the contractor, active construction for approximately three (3) months is anticipated.
