Route description[edit]

CR 520 eastbound in Holmdel Township

The highway extends 22.39 miles (36.03 km) from Englishtown Road (CR 527) in Old Bridge Township to Ocean Avenue (Route 36, formerly County Route 9) in Sea Bright.

CR 520 extends east along Texas Road to the intersection with Marlboro Road, then turns southeast onto Marlboro Road. Texas Road continues beyond Marlboro Road as CR 690. CR 520 is under municipal (Old Bridge and Marlboro Townships) jurisdiction between Texas Road and US 9. From US 9 to its eastern terminus it is under Monmouth County jurisdiction. CR 520 is known by several names between US 9 and Route 35, among them Main Street, Newman Springs Road and simply Route 520, but for the greater part of its distance it is Newman Springs Road. At Route 35, CR 520 turns briefly north on Broad Street in Red Bank, then turns east again onto Pinckney Road, which it follows into Little Silver. It continues through Little Silver along Branch Avenue before turning onto Rumson Road, which it then follows through Rumson to its terminus at Ocean Avenue (Route 36) in Sea Bright.
