MANASQUAN — The borough introduced two ordinances Monday night, one of which is a bond ordinance that will provide funding for phase one of the Euclid Avenue road and drainage improvement project.

According to the borough website, improvements are slated for the eastern end of Euclid Avenue between South Potter Avenue and Perrine Boulevard, including Watson Place and Holly Place. “The improvements include roadway improvements, pedestrian and handicap accessibility improvements, crosswalk upgrades and drainage improvements,” the website states.

Borough Administrator Tom Flarity said that the area benefiting from the project “is probably the worst, or certainly rivals the worst” pavement and drainage issues in town. He added that the residents of Euclid Avenue have been vocal about the issues for several years.
