Ocean County officials announced Wednesday that several lengths of roadways in Toms River will be paved under the latest county paving and road maintenance program.
The Ocean County commissioners met Wednesday for a work session and are expected to formally award a bid for the work when they meet next week. The bid will be awarded to Earle Asphalt for $3,060,513, and will include the Toms River roadways as well as a few smaller paving segments in other towns.
In Toms River, the roads due to be paved include:
- Oak Avenue, from North Bay Avenue to Route 571 (including behind Ocean County Mall).
- Clifton Avenue, from Cedar Grove Road to Washington Street.
- Silver Bay Road, from Hooper Avenue to the eastern limit of the county road.
The work will include 5.7 lane miles of repaving, and provide for upgraded drainage infrastructure and accessibility features for the disabled. The work also includes portions of River Road and Bay Avenue (separate from the road of the same name in Toms River) in Point Pleasant Borough.
