In Matawan: Ravine Drive Closed Due to Flood Damage
The road will remain closed until further notice, officials say.
Ravine Drive between Main Street and Matawan Avenue will be closed
until further notice after flood water from Lake Lefferts again damaged the roadway, said Lt. Ben Smith.
Although the damage is not immediately visible to drivers, the supporting stones and earth alongside the highly traveled street washed away during Wednesday night's storm.
This is not the first time that the section of Ravine Drive along the Lake Lefferts dam has given way. In 2011, during Tropical Storm Irene, rushing water from the lake washed away a chunk of pavement. The road remained closed for weeks while the county conducted repairs.
Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.
