POLL: Should 537 Extend Through Fort Monmouth into Oceanport?
The county engineer hopes the move will decrease traffic.
With the news earlier this month that the county wants to extent Route 537 across Route 35 in Eatontown and through the Fort Monmouth property might seem to some an opportunity to squeeze lemondade out of the closing of the Army base.
Others might see it as an opening of a floodgate of traffic into town.
Tthe road would run from the Avenue of Memories at the main gate of Fort Monmouth on the Eatontown side, all the way to main entrance on the Oceanport side on Oceanport Avenue."
Monmouth County Engineer Joe Ettore recently explained the plan to the Eatontown Council and said the project would help alleviate congestion in the area.
