: Clear Sailing on the Long Beach Island Causeway This Summer!

Clear Sailing on the Long Beach Island Causeway This Summer!

Well, come on down the shore!  The New Jersey Department of Transportation has agreed to delay repairs to the Causeway, the only bridge linking Long Beach Island, NJ with the mainland.

When plans for the repairs were announced last spring, the work was to take place after Labor Day.  But, the state wanted to use the fed's stimulus package money and then said the work would begin on July 20th.

Well, since that announcement the outrage from residents, visitors and local officials has forced the DOT to reconsider, and now we're back to the old repair date, sometime after Labor Day!

So it'll be clear sailing on the causeway this summer...come on down (or over if you live in Philly)...visit the Jersey Shore!

Hi Laura:

Can you imagine the additional traffic if they were to start before Labor Day!

 No one would want to go over the bridge...

Finally some legislators who listen to their constituents!

Enjoy the clear sailing!

It's a beautiful area.

yaaayyyy!!!  glad to hear it Laura.     Now get this --- I went to the beach over the weekend, and the lovely town of Hilton Head Island has decided to do MAJOR construction on the main PUBLIC BEACH ENTRANCE -----at the height of the season--- ugh!   So - instead of a nice bathroom facility--they had a line of porta-potties..... and NO SHOWER, ugh....  my car is full of sand, lol.     Why the heck don't they do these things in the fall or winter.    As I was walking down the dirt path - next to the roped off construction area headed to the beach - I said to one of the workers (not american..and obviously did not speak much english) anyway - I said 'you picked the PERFECT TIME to do this construction!'...and his reply 'thank you - thank you' as he smiled.     UGH!!!!

Kara, we have very few public rest rooms and no bath house facilities on the Island!  I wonder if the economic impact statements reflected you sentiments!
