Ten miles of the 12.5 mile construction zone on Route 35 will have all of the travel lanes available.

According to NJDOT:

“In the towns of Bay Head and Mantoloking no construction will be allowed on either Route 35 or side streets during the summer. In Berkeley, Seaside Park, and Seaside Heights all construction on Route 35 will be halted, but construction on side streets will continue. In Brick and Toms River, at least one lane of Route 35 in each direction will be maintained while construction continues on a 2.5 mile stretch of the highway. “

“Route 35 is the main artery along the Barnegat Peninsula connecting many Jersey Shore destinations,” NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson said. “We are working in partnership with our contractors, local officials, and businesses to ease congestion and limit the impact to residents and businesses during the summer, while advancing the project on an aggressive schedule to restore the shore as quickly as possible.” 

NJDOT contractors will resume construction on Route 35 in early September.
