It's been years in the making, but it appears that the repaving of Tilton Road is finally underway.

Local residents, retail and restaurant customers, and those looking to get from the Garden State Parkway to various Shore Points will be pleased to know they may soon have a smooth ride down Tilton Road.

After what has seemed like endless years of spot paving, patching, sewer work, and more, the company hired to do the paving work started the process overnight.

Most of the repaving work is expected to take place over the late night and early morning hours of the next several days.
