Welcome to the Monmouth County Oceanic Bridge (S-31) Local Concept Development (LCD) Study website!

Monmouth County is in the Local Concept Development (LCD) Study phase to identify improvement alternatives for the existing Oceanic Bridge (S-31) over the Navesink River between the Borough of Rumson and Township of Middletown.

Constructed in 1939, the Oceanic Bridge is in need of a major rehabilitation or replacement. The County is conducting this study in conjunction with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).

Community involvement is an important part of the LCD Study phase, and we encourage the community and general public to participate and provide input during the study.

The LCD Study phase is now complete. The next phase of design is Local Preliminary Engineering, which is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2022.
