Seaside Road Blocks Heading Into Summer?

Posted: Updated:
Seaside Heights, New Jersey (My9NJ) - There’s a new “Situation” in Seaside, New Jersey this year. The infamous summer vacation spot is currently going through some road blocks. The moment you enter the island drivers are hit with detour signs, gates, or a bunch of cones. Some locals may even have trouble getting to their homes and businesses.

Gary Jablonski, Co-owner of Bum Rogers Tavern and Crabhouse discussed the street situation in one of New Jersey’s biggest shore towns.

“A lot of them can’t even get down their own streets and you know they have to park at the top of the street and walk down. So if you have groceries, it’s been tough,” Gary stated.

10 years ago the New Jersey Department of Transportation made a reconstruction plan for the entire island. It all started in Mantoloking and Bay Head, which are just north of Seaside, New Jersey. Timing is everything and it is said the construction will be done by Memorial Day so the summer traffic will be able to run. Unfortunately, they are going to continue construction again but luckily not until the summer season is over.

There is much work that needs to be done in Seaside. Not only to improve the water and road quality, but also to help protect Seaside residents from future storms. While residents are understandably frustrated, local businesses may not be set back from the road work. Lieutenant

Governor Kim Guadagno shed some positive views on New Jersey tourism.

“We actually did better for New Jersey tourism in 2013 after Sandy than the previous years,” Guadagno noted.

Even with irritating road blocks residents can have a positive outlook and focus on light at the end of tunnel for the future of their beloved island.
