Construction starts in May on new $350 million NJ 72 causeway to Long Beach Island

NJ Route 72$350M project to build new Rt. 72 causeways slated to begin in MayAPP
Some much-needed good news is coming to Hurricane Sandy-stricken Long Beach Island. A second series of NJ 72 bridges connecting the mainland to LBI will be constructed while the existing causeway will be rebuilt. Walkways/bikeways will be included on both alignments.

THE “MOST IMPORTANT” NEWS

They new bridge also will incorporate a modern interpretation of the unusual “string of pearls” street lights across the existing causeway, which will be incorporated in the outside railings to make a visual statement from all approaches, Simpson

It has been several years since I went to Long Beach Island after going there for most of my life, but I have been itching for a return. That may happen this summer, though the continuing recovery from Hurricane Sandy may prevent that trip.
