SEASIDE PARK - An Ocean County town hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy is taking down the barricades.

Seaside Park ended police checkpoints at the entrance to town on Route 35 this morning, having recovered sufficiently from the storm to permit normal traffic flow. It also ended a system of permits and stickers that only allowed residents and contractors into town in the aftermath of the storm.

A 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. pedestrian curfew will remain in effect. The beaches, boardwalk, marina and bay front areas remain off limits.
