Legal Threat Delays Work At Sandy-Damaged Trail
Legal action threatened by Bruce Springsteen’s drummer Max Weinberg and a local judge is among the reasons why restoration work has not been completed at a popular waterfront trail destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
The 2.5-mile stretch of the Henry Hudson Trail along Sandy Hook Bay runs between the Monmouth County communities of Atlantic Highlands and Highlands. Residents say the trail allows them to reach local businesses without using their vehicles and is also popular with bicyclists.
But Monmouth County officials tell the Asbury Park Press that work on the trail was stopped in January, shortly after legal papers were filed by Weinberg and the judge.
Both men have homes along the trail. They claim work done to create the trail caused erosion and worsened Sandy’s impact on their properties.
