Glimmer Glass Bridge To Remain Closed


BRIELLE, NJ – The Glimmer Glass Bridge, (W-9) along Fisk Avenue between Brielle and Manasquan, will remain closed while the County evaluates necessary work to be completed before it can be reopened.


During scheduled routine maintenance of the Bridge, additional necessary repair work has been discovered and the County is not able to reopen the bridge today as previously scheduled.


The County is currently evaluating the remaining time needed to complete the necessary repairs and an update will be provided as soon as it is available.


Vehicles and pedestrians should plan to use an alternate route during this time. Detour signs are posted.
