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.

Please remove all vehicles from the roadway as per Seaside Park Borough Ordinance 435-34. Due to the limited parking on Central Avenue caused by the Rt. 35 project residents living between H Street north to Porter Avenue are asked to use off-street parking. Residents without off-street parking will be permitted to park on the south side of their roadway.

ROUTE 35 NOTIFICATION FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

In an effort to help alleviate traffic congestion along the Route 35 corridor on Saturday, March 8 before and after the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade held in Seaside Heights, NJDOT has been working with county and local officials to make traffic improvements.

  • The ramp from Route 37 eastbound to Route 35 northbound has been restriped to have two lanes available for incoming traffic.
  • Beginning at 1pm, Hamilton Avenue in Seaside Heights will be converted into two lanes westbound only and they will continue all the way to Pelican Island where the highway expands to three lanes.
  • For parade-day only, temporary traffic signals within the construction zones along Route 35 through Mantoloking and Bay Head will be monitored by NJDOT traffic operations specialists and will be adjusted as necessary to alleviate delays as much as possible.

NJDOT recommends motorists use Route 37 as their primary route to and from Seaside Heights for the parade. Saturday’s warm weather forecast may encourage tourists to visit the event. Motorists should be aware that this is an active construction zone and should allow for more travel time.

Variable Message Signs around the area have been and will continue to post alerts advising motorists to expect delays.
