Seaside Bridge Traffic Alert For This Saturday Polar Bear Plunge
If you're heading to Seaside Heights this Saturday (2/24) for the Polar Bear Plunge, give yourself extra time.
Once again, there will only be one lane open heading eastbound over the Tunney Bridge due to the winter construction on the drawbridge that won't be completed until this May.
Thankfully this is the FINAL phase of the bridge construction that has had the older, smaller bridge closed for the past three Winters.
Officials say, "The DOT has been working very closely with the event organizers as well as local officials regarding the Polar Plunge this weekend, and basically we’re recommending that anyone attending the event look at alternate routes".
Route 35 South into Seaside Heights is a recommended alternative.
