MIDDLETOWN — The Bray Avenue bridge over Pew Creek is closed until further notice after a recent inspection revealed an engineering defect believed to be caused by tidal surge during superstorm Sandy.

Only pedestrian traffic will be permitted until further notice. Vehicle traffic will be detoured between Main Street and Thompson Avenue, and Bray Avenue will be open only to local traffic.
“The county understands the inconvenience that this closure will have on the motoring public in the area,” Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone said in a statement.“Our concern is for the safety of the traveling public and the county will work to determine the best course of action for this structure.”
The 60-year-old wooden bridge underwent a routine inspection late last week, which prompted Monmouth County crews to look at its substructure once again Monday.
Monmouth County officials had already been in the process of preparing plans for replacing the bridge before Monday’s closure.
In recent years, county officials also downgraded the weight limit on the bridge to 5 tons because of deterioration.
