Colonial Drive In Manchester To Shut For 3 Weeks

The tentative start date for the Colonial Drive sewer line construction project for a new development is set to begin on or about August 14th. The planned duration of the work will be approximately three weeks. During that time direct access from Route 37 to Route 70 on Colonial Drive will be prohibited. Colonial Drive will be completely closed in both directions between the Manchester Emergency Medical Services building and Huntington Drive.

In addition, the Route 37 west bound exit ramp to Colonial Drive will also be completely closed. Access the municipal complex, Ocean County Library and the Manchester Emergency Services building will require individuals to proceed west on Route 37 past Colonial to the Lakehurst Circle and then they must return east on Route 37. They must then use the Route 37 exit ramp to Colonial Drive to cross over Route 37 to access the complex.

Exiting from Leisure Village from Huntington Drive access from Route 70, individuals will need to turn left on Route 70 west at the intersection with Colonial Drive then travel west to the Lakehurst Circle. They must then head east on Route 37 and use the Colonial Drive exit ramp.

Access will also be limited to the TD Bank to Route 37 west bound only.

The same detour routes also apply for access to the Manchester High School and the Manchester Township Elementary School.

Signage to alert motorists of the upcoming project has been deployed. Additionally, signage for the detour will be up throughout the project, including variable message boards displaying to motorists on how to proceed if they wish to enter the municipal complex or EMS building.

Social Media notifications and Nixle notifications will also be prepared.

Any questions, please contact the Traffic Safety Office 732-657-2009 Ext 4400 or Police Dispatch 732-657-6111.
