Construction To Resume On Route 35 After Labor Day
Motorists Should Be Alert For Multiple Work Zones Throughout The Project
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced construction to rebuild Route 35 will resume on Tuesday, September 2. The Department suspended its construction on Route 35 during the busy summer season to minimize the inconvenience to businesses, residents, and vacationers who make the Jersey Shore a prime tourist destination between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Route 35, which is the backbone of the Barnegat Peninsula, was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy.  The project began last summer and substantial progress has been made, including the complete reconstruction of the interchange between Route 37 and Route 35 that serves as a primary way on and off the peninsula.
