As I reported this week, on construction in Lakewood, this project in Toms River will bring added traffic to the area with more families and more vehicles coming to town. Housing is needed as I stated yesterday, but is the growth in Toms River outpacing the infrastructure? More families more cars, more traffic more congestion. What is the balance?

There is another similar housing project built in the Toms River area, Gabrielle Run. The apartments at this development, also on Route 9, has units of various price ranges but obviously “luxury” considering the price tag. The smaller units with 2 bedrooms and 1,215 square feet starts at $2,050.00 per month. The larger units with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and 2,077 square feet start at $3,325.00 per month. Obviously these prices show the “luxury” theme going on at these developments along Route 9 in Lakewood and Toms River.

So if you live in Toms River or any of the surrounding communities, how do you feel about the ever-growing landscape of Ocean County? Are we outpacing our infrastructure? Do we need more roadways to handle the increase in population? Have you looked at the new housing along Route 9 in Toms River and Lakewood? If so what did YOU think?
