County Commissioners open Bridge HL-73 in Howell
Project included upgrades to Lake Louise Dam

HOWELL, NJ –The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of Bridge HL-73 and Lake Louise Dam located on Lanes Pond Rd on Thursday, Oct. 13.

“The County determined that there was a need to replace the HL-73 bridge because of its antiquated timber structure and worked with Howell Twp. to concurrently upgrade the Lake Louise Dam to current standards,” Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “This project was a clear example of partnership between the County and Howell Twp., with the County covering 100 % of the bridge repairs, Howell covering 100 % of the approach roadway and both the County and Township equally sharing the cost of repairing the dam.”

A construction contract for the joint Monmouth County and Howell Township project was awarded in September of 2021 to Marbro, Inc., of Montclair, New Jersey for $4,047,117.00.

In total, the County maintains approximately 1,000 lane miles of roads, 980 bridges and culverts and 250 traffic signals and beacons.
