MCRP in Holmdel
Anyone who traveled Route 35 in Holmdel in the 1980s likely would not recognize the community today – especially the section from Mulberry Lane to Cherry Tree Farm Road. Substantial residential and commercial construction has taken place in recent years, from the Lowes Shopping Center and Kohl’s Plaza to the Miller Avenue Shopping Center and Holmdel Towne Center.
While this growth has brought many new businesses and jobs into the community, it has also increased demands on the electrical system. At JCP&L, it’s our job to make sure our customers in Holmdel have the power they need when they need it. That is 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 Holmdel along the Transit line where it crosses Bethany Road, follow the railroad line to the JCP&L Taylor Lane Substation in Middletown, and continue on to Red Bank.
