Monmouth County will now take a closer look at Laurel Avenue Bridge in Holmdel, a problem spot that seems to snag tractor-trailers.
The overpass crosses a busy section of Laurel Avenue, connecting the Garden State Parkway to Route 35. The NJ Transit North Jersey Coast Line train tracks cross the road.
Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone says the feds gave them $800,000 to conduct a study to see how to improve the clearance, which will be a joint effort with the county, NJDOT and NJ Transit. Arnone also says the bridge is in substandard condition.
The clearance at the bridge is 12 feet, 5 inches.
No timetable on the study was given by the county.
