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).

Please be advised that Route 37 Mathis Bridge over the Barnegat Bay will be closed for its second of three construction cycles beginning Friday, October 28, 2016 at 7 a.m.

Beginning Friday morning and continuing into Saturday, the contractor will be preparing the roadway for the winter traffic shift by striping new traffic lanes, placing the temporary lane barrier, and adjusting the location of the Douglas Street traffic signal. During construction, the Tunney Bridge will be converted to one lane eastbound and two lanes westbound.


This upcoming construction cycle will allow the contractor to rehabilitate the bridge operator’s house, install the new “candy cane” style warning gates, conduct minor electrical work and continue with bridge work from the center bascule to the west.

Be advised, this route will have lane restrictions for over-sized loads and permits should be coordinated with the NJDOT and Ocean County permitting offices. Vehicles violating this prohibition may be summoned.

There will be no Mathis Bridge openings between December 1, 2016 and March 15, 2017 for marine traffic.

Route 37 eastbound traffic will resume to its normal configuration for the peak summer season on or about May 12, 2017.
