Are You Prepared for the Morris Boulevard Bridge Closure in Stafford Township?

The mark-outs have been done and there are routine, pre-construction meetings happening daily for the Morris Boulevard Bridge construction project.  From my understanding, South Jersey Gas has begun work for the project and Atlantic City Electric will begin once the gas company is wrapped up.  Then, Ocean County will be able to start construction of the bridge that is currently 20 feet wide with an under clearance of 7 feet.  From what I gather the new bridge will have a 9 foot under clearance and a 40-foot total width. According to Stafford Township officials, there is a timeline and the project should be finished for Memorial Day 2020.  

So here's the question.  Are you ready for the bridge closure?  

Often times we take for granted the most direct route to where we come and go from daily.  Not only will this closure affect traffic on the roadway, it too will affect the waterway of many residents of Beach Haven West.  Will you be able to get your boat out in time?  Will you have to set your alarm clock 10 minutes earlier to head to the Island in the morning?  Will you have to leave for that appointment a few minutes sooner because of the traffic congestion at Marsha Drive and Route 72?
