If You need any further information you can reach out to local authorities. Area residents can call 877-565-1456 if they have any questions. Officials appreciate residents' patience and understanding throughout this project.

If you are an early morning commuter just keep in mind there may be slowdowns with the morning commute and some of the construction may take a bit to wrap up each morning as the morning drive commute becomes busier and more congested through sections of Downtown Toms River over the next few days.

Construction through the next few days will continue. Officials say they hope to wrap up shortly with the work being down.

According to the Toms River, website construction will affect the area. "Where the paving project is taking place, there may be some temporary traffic disruptions, and Washington Street in both directions will be temporarily closed with adequately posted diversion signs to warn vehicles and residents of the impacted areas. Drivers are advised to exercise caution when passing through construction zones."

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
