To avoid bottlenecks getting into Seaside Heights this weekend for the three-day Columbus Day Festival, avoid using Route 35 and take Route 37 through Toms River instead, New Jersey Department of Transportation officials advise.
As the Jersey Shore gets ready for another post-Sandy tourism season, officials from the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Ocean County have hammered out construction plans for Route 35 for the summer season.
With a St. Patrick's Day parade set for Saturday, Ocean County motorists are worried about a potential sequel to the recent major gridlock on Route 35, and local officials are working feverishly to make sure it doesn't happen again.
The rough winter weather has slowed the Route 35 reconstruction project. Shore area officials are hoping it will be done in time for the summer, but many think that's unlikely considering the snow, ice and rain.
