LAVALLETTE - Gov. Chris Christie unveiled a plan today to upgrade Route 35 in Ocean County, parts of which were devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

Christie announced in a press conference earlier today that $215 million in federal funds will be put toward the 12.5-mile stretch that was destroyed.

The area from Point Pleasant Beach to the entrance of Island Beach State Park will be worked on in stages in order to avoid heavy traffic congestion.

The renovation is set to begin early this summer with a completion date of summer 2015.
