TRAFFIC ALERT 
NJDOT NORWOOD AVE PROJECT AND NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN IN ALLENHURST 

Beginning 10/12/2018

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) reconstruction project on Norwood Avenue (Route 71), has restarted. The NJDOT will be installing new curbing, driveway aprons, and sidewalks along the northbound side of Norwood Avenue and will then complete the project by repaving the entire length of the road from Edgemont Drive to the border of Deal. The entire project is expected to be completed sometime in December.

Because of this project, there are going to be several new traffic patterns that I want to inform everyone about.

Beginning on the night of Friday, October 12, the following will occur, and will continue into December:

  • The only intersection at which vehicles will be able to cross Norwood Avenue will be CORLIES AVENUE.
  • Barricades will be posted at every cross street at each Norwood Avenue (Route 71) intersection, with the exception of Corlies Avenue.
  • All Ocean Avenue intersections will have signage indicating “Road Closed Ahead” and “Local Traffic Only”.
  • Norwood Avenue will be open to SOUTHBOUND TRAFFIC ONLY.
  • Northbound traffic will be detoured to Ocean Avenue.

The NJDOT has informed us that all those who live along Norwood Avenue will be able to get to and from their driveways during this ongoing project. They also informed us that this work is being done one side at a time. The northbound side will be completed first, followed immediately by the southbound side.

I recognize the inconvenience of this project, but the work the NJDOT is doing along Norwood Avenue is necessary, overdue, and unavoidable. When this project is completed, everyone here at the Borough is confident that the finished, updated and fully improved roadway will be worth the temporary inconveniences we are all dealing with now.

If anyone has any problems or questions about the how the traffic pattern is being set up, please feel free to contact Police Headquarters at (732) 531-2255.

Rest assured that the Borough is in contact with the project Supervisor on a daily basis. We will seek to rectify any issue, which may arise, in a timely manner.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

The Allenhurst Garden Club


The Allenhurst Garden Club was founded November 28, 1995. Two neighborhood women conversing over a picket fence, both with a love of gardening and friendship formed the nonprofit volunteer organization. The Allenhurst Garden Club’s objectives are to encourage interest in all phases of home gardening and promote better horticultural practices, civic beauty, and the conservation of natural resources.

Ten years later the club has thirty-eight active members, who are proud and pleased to have planted, pulled, and clipped their way toward that original goal. We now have a beautiful beach club perennial garden, the town’s Main Street and Ocean boardwalk are dotted with planters brimming with flowers that are changed according to the seasons.

Even as we saw the results of our efforts throughout the community, our vision continued to blossom. Our community garden projects have expanded to include, the restoration of the historical Centennial Park Colonnade & Memorial Flower Gardens on Main Street.

“The Porch and Garden Walk”, held every other year, is the club’s major fund-raiser. The contributions from this event provide the funds needed for the completion of the Centennial Park Memorial Flower Gardens, the container gardens in the community flowering and various club projects.
