A portion of the northern barrier island from the Mantoloking Bridge, south to the Toms River border will be re-opening Thursday morning at 7. Brick Township Emergency Management officials ask contractors and homeowners not to park in front of debris piles and to park off street if possible.

On December 10th, an area of the barrier island will be closed from the ocean to the bay, south of Jeanette Drive to allow New Jersey Natural Gas to complete its work.

The closure will impact portions of Sunset Blvd., 9th Ave, 8th Ave, 7th Ave, 6th Ave, 5th Ave, Ocean Terrace, Rt. 35 North and Southbound, south of Jeanette Dr., Normandy Dr., Ellison Dr., Broad Ave, Arrow Ct. and lake Ct.

Officials say this closure should only be in effect for Monday December 10th while NJNG completes their work.
