Starting July 2014, the NJDOT will commence work on the intersection improvements to Route 9, East Freehold Road, Pond Road and Craig Road.
Improvements will include:
• A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Pond Road and East Freehold Road.
• A far-side jughandle will be constructed for northbound Route 9 traffic, north of Route 9 & Craig Road/East Freehold Road Intersection (behind the Getty gas station), for left and U-Turns.
• An additional lane in each direction will be provided along Route 9.
• The existing exit ramp onto Pond Road will be reconfigured to prohibit left turns onto Pond Road.
Temporary overnight lane closures and single or double lane closures are anticipated.
The improvements will take approximately 2 years to complete but will significantly improve traffic flow and reduce delays. The Township asks all residents and visitors to use caution in construction zones and thanks you for your patience!

In March 2013, Governor Chris Christie signed into law Chapter 15 P.L 2013 known as The Assessment Demonstration Program to begin in tax year 2014. The Monmouth County Board of Taxation and the Monmouth County Assessors have decided to be the first in the State to take on this project. Although there will be many changes over the next 5 years, the major changes for 2014 will be that the Assessment postcards that are normally received in February, will be mailed on or about November 15, 2013 giving the 2014 assessment. The Appeal deadline for all appeals of the assessment to the Monmouth County Board of Taxation is now January 15th for each year.
