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).

FUTURE OF ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP LIES IN ITS YOUTH
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
COMMISSIONER BOB MARTIN
(15/P35) TRENTON – Today marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, an important day commemorated by events that remind us of the importance of protecting our planet and its natural resources – not just for today, but for future generations.
We know our resources are not limitless. And that they are fragile. New Jersey for years has had a strong environmental ethic, even paving the way for much of the country. This is especially evident in our schools, where students and faculty are spearheading recycling efforts and energy conservation initiatives such as rain gardens and solar panels. They are also planting native vegetation and making innovative uses of technology to find new ways to conserve and protect.

Route 35 overnight full closure in Bay Head and Mantoloking rescheduled for Monday due to weather
Minor work tonight will require alternating traffic
(Trenton) – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced the full overnight closure of Route 35 for final paving in Bay Head and Mantoloking is being rescheduled for Monday, April 20 because of weather. However, there will be work on Route 35 tonight requiring alternating traffic.
Beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, April 17, through 8 a.m. Saturday, April 18, NJDOT’s contractor, Agate Construction Company, Inc., is scheduled to close one lane of Route 35 with alternating traffic between Lyman Street in Mantoloking through Osborne Avenue in Bay Head to level the roadway in preparation for the final paving on Monday. There will be no parking allowed on the shoulder of Route 35 tonight in the work zone.
Mount Street, which was expected to be paved today, also will be paved on Monday, April 20. Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. There will be no parking on Mount Street and no access to driveways the day it is paved.
NJDOT’s Community Outreach Team will continue to notify residents in advance of work being done. Downer Street, Lyman Street, Goetze Street were repaved this week.
Beginning at 9 p.m. Monday, April 20, until 6 a.m. the next day, NJDOT’s contractor, Agate Construction Company, Inc., will close Route 35 in both directions at Osborne Avenue in Bay Head through Princeton Avenue in Mantoloking for final paving of the highway.
There will be no parking allowed on Route 35 in the work zone and no access to driveways during the overnight closure. Parking will be available on side streets.
The full closure of the roadway is required to apply the surface course of asphalt using a process known as echelon paving. This technique eliminates the seams between lanes, reducing the possibility of roadway deterioration and potholes, which should provide a longer-lasting surface. A small portion of the project north of Osborne Avenue will be paved using traditional daytime alternating traffic.
The following signed detours will be in place Monday night with local police assisting at points along the detour:
Southbound motorists will turn right onto Osborne Avenue
Turn left onto Lake Avenue
Continue to Johnson Street then turn right at stop sign and turn left onto Clayton Avenue
Clayton Avenue becomes Barnegat Lane in Mantoloking
Continue to Herbert Street/Route 528 and turn right then immediate left turn onto Bay Avenue
Turn left onto Princeton Avenue then turn right to return to Route 35 South
Northbound traffic will turn left onto Princeton Avenue in Mantoloking
Turn right onto Bay Avenue
Continue to Herbert Street/Route 528 and turn right then immediate left on Barnegat Lane
Barnegat Lane becomes Clayton Avenue in Bay Head
Turn right onto Johnson Street then immediate left onto Lake Avenue
Turn right onto Osborne Avenue then turn left to return to Route 35 North
Variable message signs will be used to notify motorists of all traffic pattern changes. The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check www.511nj.org for real-time travel information.
Route 35, which is the backbone of the Barnegat Peninsula, was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy and is being completely rebuilt. The $310 million project is divided into three geographic sections and began during the summer of 2013.
The new stone-and-asphalt roadway will be two feet thick, providing a more stable road and smoother driving surface. A new storm-water drainage system for Route 35 has been designed to handle 25-year storms and will feature nine pump stations and treatment facilities to filter and purify the storm water prior to discharge into Barnegat Bay.
NJDOT has an accelerated schedule for this project to accomplish a massive amount of work in as short a timeframe as possible to bring the shore back better than ever. The Department is advancing this project in a manner that balances the desire to work expeditiously with the need to accommodate residents, business owners and visitors.
The Department has a robust community outreach effort that includes a hotline telephone number, 732-230-7356, and email address, firstname.lastname@example.org for residents to pose questions or provide suggestions as work progresses.
NJDOT also has created a project-specific website that provides information on the proposed construction activity. The site will be updated as work advances.
