Welcome!

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).

Commuters advised to expect unusual congestion and delays on all travel modes

NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT Rail Operations faces the prospect of a systemwide shutdown should the membership of its rail union opt to participate in a work stoppage. This would result in the complete suspension of NJ TRANSIT rail service, affecting more than 160,000 customers who ride the system on a typical weekday. In the event of such a stoppage, NJ TRANSIT has developed a contingency plan that would accommodate up to about 38 percent, or about 40,000 seats, of the existing New York-bound customer base.

(Trenton) – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today advised motorists heading to events in Seaside Heights between now and early May to seek alternate routes other than Route 37 eastbound/Mathis Bridge.

In order to minimize congestion and help traffic flow as smoothly as possible for this weekend’s Polar Bear Plunge, and for St. Patrick’s Day festivities in March, NJDOT is working with local officials and event organizers to direct traffic to use multiple routes to get to Seaside Heights while Route 37 eastbound/Mathis Bridge is under construction for the winter/spring season until May 12th.

Read more...

During construction there is one eastbound travel lane and two westbound travel lanes available on the Tunney Bridge. Although one eastbound lane is open, motorists choosing to use Route 37 eastbound to get to special events in Seaside Heights can expect congestion and delays.  Visitors should allow for more travel time in getting to their destination

Please note, no vehicles, trailers or parade floats exceeding 11′ will be permitted on the bridge heading eastbound into Seaside Heights.

The best way to get to the events are:

From the Garden State Parkway

From the North

  • Take the Garden State Parkway south to exit 98 for Route 34 South.
  • Follow Route 34 South, which will become Route 35 South.
  • Continue on Route 35 South over the Manasquan River Bridge and proceed for several miles.
  • Route 35 South will become a two-lane roadway. Follow signs toward Seaside Heights.

  • Follow Route 34 South, which will become Route 35 South.

  • Follow Mantoloking Road to end.

  • Route 35 South will become a two-lane roadway.  Follow signs toward Seaside Heights.

Project Details

The $74 million federally-funded Mathis Bridge project will replace the existing bridge deck, which is 65 years old, make safety improvements to the barrier and railings, and repair and replace mechanical and electrical components that operate the moveable lift span.

Construction is anticipated to take place for three seasons and is expected to be completed by the summer 2018. The construction cycle requiring a full closure of the Mathis Bridge will be limited to November 1 to April 30 each year. During each of these construction cycles, summer traffic from approximately May 15 to September 15 will not be affected and all three current lanes on each bridge will be open to traffic.

Community Outreach

NJDOT created a project-specific web site that contains a wealth of information about the project, which can be found on the Department’s web site by going to www.NJCommuter.com and selecting Route 37 Mathis Bridge under the Construction Updates bullet. The Department is carefully coordinating the project with local officials to minimize the effect to residents and businesses.

The Department has a Project Community Outreach Team that can be reached through the project hotline telephone number, 732-230-7356, email, DOT-Route37Mathis.outreach@dot.nj.gov, or project website. Anyone who has questions, concerns, or suggestions is encouraged to contact the Project Community Outreach Team as work progresses. To stay informed as the project progresses, send your email to the Community Outreach Team to sign up for project alert emails.

NJDOT will be using Variable Message Signs to provide advance notification to motorists of traffic pattern changes associated with the work.  Follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info and visit www.511nj.org for travel advisories.

Storm Plan Activated and Additional Resources Being Secured

Morristown, N.J. – Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is prepared to respond to a large winter storm that could impact New Jersey and other parts of the East Coast beginning Friday. The forecasted high winds and heavy, wet snow have the potential to cause trees and limbs to fall into poles, wires and other electrical equipment, requiring JCP&L crews to make repairs in difficult conditions.

Company meteorologists are monitoring a weather system that could produce up to a foot of snow by the weekend, wind gusts of up to 60 mph, particularly along the Jersey shore, and the possibility of coastal flooding.

As a result, JCP&L has implemented its storm plan, including staffing additional dispatchers and analysts at regional dispatch offices, and is making arrangements to bring in additional line, substation and forestry personnel, as needed, based on the severity of the weather. In addition, substations in flood-prone areas are being reinforced with protection devices.
Electrical contractors also have been notified they could be required to assist with storm restoration efforts in JCP&L areas over the next several days. In addition, the company has been in contact with several utility mutual assistance organizations to determine if crews from other utilities would be available to assist, if needed.
“We are monitoring the weather conditions closely and are making plans to deploy resources and personnel to the areas that could get hit the hardest,” said Tony
Hurley, JCP&L vice president of Operations. “The ultimate goal of our pre-planning efforts is to help speed the restoration process and minimize any inconvenience our customers experience due to the weather.”

Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled in trees or other debris. Motorists are cautioned to treat intersections with inoperable traffic signals as four-way stops.

Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the “Report Outage” link on www.jcp-l.com. In the event of severe weather, customers should immediately report downed wires to their utility or their local police or fire department.

JCP&L customers also can subscribe to email and text message alert notifications to receive weather alerts in advance of major storms, and updates on scheduled or extended power outages. Customers can also use two-way text messaging to report outages, request updates on restoration efforts, and make other inquiries about their electric accounts. More information about these communications tools is available online at www.jcp-l.com/connect.

JCP&L is a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE). JCP&L serves 1.1 million New Jersey customers in the counties of Burlington, Essex, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren. Follow JCP&L on Twitter @JCP_L, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/JCPandL or online at www.jcp-l.com.
