We’ve heard the rumors for years now! Construction of the new Causeway will begin in late May. Jersey Strong! 

“This is the most critical piece of infrastructure in our area. It is the only way on and off Long Beach Island,” said Stafford Mayor John Spodofora, adding there have been past concerns about that situation.

The new bridge will provide more access to and from the barrier islands in the event of an emergency such as superstorm Sandy, Simpson said. The new span also will have features the current causeway lacks, including wide shoulders and space for pedestrians and cyclists, he said.

“It will be replaced with something better and stronger. It is the first part of a seven-year process,” Guadagno said. “We’re here mostly to send a message that we aim to rebuild and do it faster and better than anyone has in the past.”- APP.COM
