Modular Home Contractors - Bridge Lane Restrictions
As of February 9, 2015 all modular homes must be on the island before 7am due to lane restrictions on Rt. 72. Bridge lanes will be reduced to two 11ft wide lanes with daily lane closures after 7am leaving only one 11ft lane to enter the Island. Please plan accordingly, if you arrive after this time you may be forced to turn around and wait until the following day. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Letter from US Army Corps of Engineers
Beach Replenishment Project
Dear Mayor Mancini,
I am responding to your inquiry on the status of the Barnegat Inlet to Little Egg Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project. Everyone here at the District understands the growing concern on when the actual construction of the project will begin. Currently we are still working through many complicated requirements to get the remaining portions of Long Beach Island ready for construction. Our project team has worked to expedite every aspect of the process. Some of these steps include completing a thorough review and re-evaluation of the project; coordinating with environmental resource agencies; and working with our sponsor, the NJDEP, on the necessary agreements to proceed and their efforts to obtain the required public access and beach easements. Unfortunately, it has taken more time than originally anticipated to get it all done. We understand the urgency to get the project constructed and are working as quickly as we can to get the project completed while making sure we get it all done right adhering to all of the applicable laws. Though we do not have a revised detailed schedule to release at this time, it is not likely that a contract would get awarded prior to Labor Day and actual construction begin before the fall of 2014.
As always I am available to discuss any questions you may have and will continue to update you on our progress to get this critical storm damage reduction project fully constructed.
