SEA BRIGHT - The construction of a new bus stop shelter on Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright will help to bring some normalcy back to the borough.

Volunteers with the organization Sea Bright Rising have designed the structure and say it will become a bright spot in the area's recovery.

"Everybody gets to see a little more every day," says Gary Kafcsak, of Perth Amboy. "It makes it a lot better for a lot of people. It gives them hope basically."

The shelter that stood in the same location before Sandy was painted inside to look like a beach house. The artist says she'll transform the new shelter this spring.
