A proposal for the construction of a solid waste transfer facility in Howell, N.J., has been put on hold until repairs for a nearby bridge are completed.
According to a Centraljersey.com report, members of the Monmouth County board are waiting to consider the results of a traffic study that is being conducted in connection with the proposed transfer station until bridge repairs are finished. The transfer station, which would be established by Resource Engineering, would receive thousands of tons of cleanup and construction debris by truck each day.
The county stated that the repairs to the bridge are expected to be completed by the end of January. The bridge, which is located on Ramtown-Greenville Road, is important to the study.
