The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.

Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

Last July when the Route 35 Reconstruction Project commenced, the NJ Department of Transportation sent a notice by mail to property owners adjacent to the highway. The notice addressed the State’s Right-of-Way and called for the property owners to remove any materials, fencing, irrigation or lighting systems, etc. that are encroaching on State property. The Right-of-Way generally extends 10 feet off the edge of the pavement or face of curb, but property owners are strongly urged to check the property deed or municipal tax map to confirm the distance as this will vary throughout the island.

While this still remains a problem for some properties, a growing concern is the number of sump pumps or roof downspouts being discharged into the roadway through a connection in the curb. These discharge pipes are in violation of NJ law and will not be re-connected. As curbs are being replaced along the Route 35 corridor, these existing pipes will be cut off by the nature of construction.

Construction On The Highway To Be Suspended In Most Locations;
Limited Work Will Continue In Toms River And Brick

(Trenton) – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced the suspension of construction activities along most of Route 35 during the summer to ease congestion during the busy vacation season.

Ten miles of the 12.5-mile construction zone will have the full complement of travel lanes on Route 35 available, which not only improves traffic flow for motorists, but also ensures mobility for emergency responders during the busy summer season and maintains public safety because Route 35 serves as a primary evacuation route for the peninsula.
