TOMS RIVER – There will be temporary lane closures for a few weeks on the westbound side of the bridge coming back from Seaside Heights, the New Jersey Department of Transportation reported.
The first day of the construction will be Monday, October 3. One or two lanes will be closed from Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. One lane will always be open. The eastbound traffic will be unaffected. Electronic signs will tell drivers about the closed lanes.
The DOT said the work will take place until the end of October.
