How often do you drive over the Seaside bridge, maybe you thought the same thing?

It is weird, but I think about it all the time and now I have the answer. The proper names of the bridges to Seaside, the Thomas A. Mather Bridge, and heading back from Seaside on the J. Tunney Bridge.

The question was how do the bridge people that work in that building on the Thomas A. Mathis Bridge get to work and park. Now, I knew they had those little parking spots up there and room for two cars. But, I never thought it was for the bridge people until I recently saw the sign.

Weird, how could I never have seen the sign? Duh? Driving over the bridge, did you ever think the same thing?

My 15-year-old works in Seaside Park so I go over the bridge a lot more than I ever have. But, I've been on this bridge for years heading to Seaside and I've never even noticed the signs - reserved for bridgework and disabled vehicles.

I feel whenever I drive over the bridge, there's never a car there. I really thought they might get a ride from Toms River or have to ride their bike to the little building. I remember a while ago being at the beach with friends and I had a girlfriend mention to me, how do the bridge people get to the little building?

I never even thought about it, until recently. You bet I texted her and told her that the sign on the bridge tells us where the bridge workers park. She laughed and said she's seen it recently.

Just in case you were wondering. :)

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
