Washington Boulevard/Sea Girt Avenue grade crossing closed for repairs starting May 3

May 1, 2012

NEWARK, NJ — Beginning on Thursday, May 3 and continuing for approximately two weeks, NJ TRANSIT will make repairs to the Washington Boulevard/Sea Girt Avenue grade crossing in the Borough of Sea Girt.  The work, which includes renewal of the track bed and road surface, will ultimately result in a smoother ride for motorists traveling over the crossing.


To accommodate this work, Washington Boulevard/Sea Girt Avenue will be closed to motor vehicles between State Highway 71 and 6th Avenue (The Plaza).  Motorists entering the Borough of Sea Girt will have to use the railroad crossing at Beacon Boulevard in Sea Girt or First Avenue from Spring Lake.  In addition, on May 4, the railroad crossing may be temporarily closed to pedestrian traffic.


NJ TRANSIT is advising motorists of the following:


  • To accommodate the grade crossing repair work, the Sea Girt Police Department will be diverting vehicular traffic away from the Washington Boulevard/Sea Girt Avenue railroad crossing for the duration of the project.
  • Motorists entering the Borough of Sea Girt on Beacon Boulevard will be routed on 5th Avenue south to the business district.
  • Motorists leaving the business district will be routed northbound on 6th Avenue to the Beacon Boulevard railroad crossing.
  • Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time due to possible motor vehicle traffic delays.
  • The Sea Girt Police Department will be monitoring traffic during the project and will make adjustments to detours if needed.
