Township of Hazlet Municipal Building
MCRP in Hazlet
Hazlet is not the same town it was just a few decades ago – some of the most significant growth in Monmouth County has taken place along Route 35 in our community. Commercial and retail development includes Hazlet Plaza, Chelsea Plaza, Hazlet Avenue Shopping Center and the Best Western/Hazlet Inn. We’ve also seen increased residential construction in Hazlet in recent years.
While this growth has brought many new businesses and jobs into the community, it has also increased demand for electricity. At JCP&L, it’s our job to make sure our customers in Hazlet have the power they need when they need it. That’s why the Monmouth County Reliability Project is so important – this project will help reduce the length and frequency of service disruptions while delivering the dependable power our customers need.
The proposed MCRP route will start at the substation in Aberdeen, and will follow the New Jersey Transit corridor right-of-way through Hazlet, Holmdel, and Middleton before ending at the substation in Red Bank. The line will enter Hazlet at the township border near the Garden State Parkway, follow the railroad line to the Taylor Lane Substation in Middletown and continue on to Red Bank.
