RUMSON - Monmouth County officials say the 70-year-old Oceanic Bridge, which connects Rumson and the Navesink section of Middletown, will be closed for repairs from October until Memorial Day.

County officials awarded a $3.5 million contract last month to rehabilitate the bridge's main steel supports and its metal grid deck.

The work is expected to extend the bridge's life by 10 years until a replacement can be designed and built.
