Shrewsbury Drive


The tidal flooding has created a quality of life issue for the residents as well as property damage with the loss of vehicles and equipment. 

The Shrewsbury Drive Road Improvement project is a multi-phase, long-standing cooperative venture with the Borough of Rumson and Monmouth County due to a shared drainage outfall. 

Phase II of the project, which is set to begin in May 2024, consists of:

  • Replacing the severely deteriorated timber bulkhead,

  • Drainage infrastructure replacement,

  • Installation of a tide flow check valve,

  • Installation of low height flood walls,

  • Repaving of Monmouth Ave, Woodmere Ave, Navesink Ave and Avenue of Two River South, and the remaining half of Shrewsbury Drive, from Navesink to Osprey.

  • Replacement of curbing, and complete pavement restoration. 

The Borough of Rumson established elevation 5.0' NAVD as our level of flood protection.  While this elevation does not protect against major coastal storm events (i.e Superstorm Sandy), it protects against the frequent flooding experienced by the residents on a monthly, weekly, and at times daily basis.

The funding for this project is through a combination of The Rumson Capital Improvement Fund and a combination of two submitted, approved Municipal Aid Grants through the N.J.D.O.T totaling $557,000.00.

Weather permitting, utility verification will occur the week of May 20, 2024.

No major interruption to traffic will occur without prior notification to the residents.
