MANASQUAN — The Glimmer Glass Bridge is closed today, July 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., county officials announced.

According to a press release from Monmouth County Public Information and Tourism, the bridge has been closed for maintenance work.

“The cables on the bridge need to be realigned, so we will need to close the bridge for six hours,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering, in the press release. “We appreciate the patience of our residents and visitors while this maintenance work is being performed.”

The bridge will remain open for marine traffic, but is closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic while work is being done during those hours.

Vehicles should follow the posted detour signs, the release states.
