SEA ISLE BOULEVARD PROJECT:
The following is the current update from the county engineer as of January 17, 2019:
Paving operations will resume on January 18th along Sea Isle Boulevard from the Garden State Parkway northbound entry ramp to the westerly approach of the Ludlam’s Thoroughfare Bridge.
Paving will begin at 7:00am on Friday, January 18 and run continuously until Saturday morning around 6:00am.
Sea Isle Boulevard will always remain open; however, there will be lane shifts and traffic will be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic for periods of time. Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to avoid the construction area if possible.
Sometime between 3:00pm to 5:00pm on Friday and continuing until around 8:30pm, the ramp to Old Sea Isle Boulevard will be closed. Also, there will be periods of time when there will be no access to the Garden State Parkway north bound ramp from Sea Isle Boulevard, but this will be temporary and brief.
By Saturday late in the morning, it is anticipated that motorists will be utilizing the roadway in its final striped configuration.
