Welcome to the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge Project

Welcome to the Monmouth County Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge S-32 Replacement Project on Rumson Road (CR520) over the Shrewsbury River between the Borough of Rumson and the Borough of Sea Bright in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The bridge was built in 1950 and is approaching the end of its useful life. It has structural and functional limitations that do not meet today’s design standards.

Monmouth County, in coordination with NJTPA, NJDOT and FHWA, has completed the bridge replacement design and advancing the project to construction so to maintain this important transportation link for the local communities and the region that also serves as a coastal evacuation route.

Community involvement was a vital part of the project during the Local Concept Development (LCD) Phase, the Local Preliminary Engineering (LPE) Phase and the Final Design (FD) Phase of the project. The Project Team encourages the community and the general public to follow, participate and provide input during the Construction Phase of the bridge replacement project.
