HADLEY AVENUE TO BE MILLED AND PAVED
TOMS RIVER - Beginning Monday, Sept. 27, work crews from the Ocean County Road Department will be milling and
paving Hadley Avenue from Washington Street to Hooper Avenue in the downtown area.
In addition, Madison Avenue, from Hadley to Hooper avenues, also will be milled and paved.
"We expect the work to be completed by the end of the week or early the following week based on weather conditions
and any other circumstances we may encounter," said Ocean County Freeholder Director James F. Lacey, who serves as liaison
to the Ocean County Road Department.
Workers and visitors to the downtown Toms River area that usually use the Ocean County Parking Garage entrance off of
Madison Avenue should be aware that access to the
parking deck will be affected by the work. Also, access from Hadley Avenue to the Ocean County Government Office Parking
lots will be affected especially during times of paving which will take place Wednesday, Sept. 29th and Thursday,
Sept. 30th and possibly the beginning of the following week. Work is scheduled to begin about 7 a.m. daily.
The work however will have no impact on entry to the Ocean County Government Complex from Hooper Avenue.
"Workers and visitors who need to use this area to park may want to give themselves a little extra time so they can
access the areas they need with little inconvenience," Lacey said.
Residents and businesses along this area also need to be aware that access to driveways will be impacted and limited
during paving operations, which will run during daytime hours Wednesday and Thursday.
The milling and paving is the last step in completing the replacement of the drainage system along Hadley Avenue.
