WARETOWN – If you were planning on going for a walk or bike ride on the Barnegat Branch Trail, you’ll want to be aware. Ocean County Parks and Recreation announced that construction is underway along Route 9 in Waretown near the trail.

According to the county parks system, “a sewer will be installed parallel to the trail between the new Cornerstone development and Tractor Supply. A temporary, non ADA accessible trail has been created by the contractor in this area along Route 9 in order to keep the section open to pedestrians.”

While this section of the Barnegat Branch Trail will remain closed during construction, the temporary trail will be available for trail users. Officials anticipate the work to be complete on or before July 12.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this temporary work will cause,” stated Ocean County Parks and Recreation.
