Dam It

Just got Downsized, Laid Off, whatever you want to call it.
 
Sucks.
 
Means I have to spend my time looking for a new job and not using vacation days to go to the beach.  I hope to be able to keep site going but I am trimming expsenses.  Ads might bring in some money.
Sorry to vent, Lots going through my mind.

More On The Traffic Situation

DOT spokeswoman Erin Phalon said her agency had already worked out a plan to reopen the ramp May 1 in anticipation of summer crowds.

Beginning Friday, all vehicles leaving Sandy Hook will have to go north on Route 36. Southbound traffic will have to use a U-turn via the Bay Avenue ramp in Highlands on weekends. On weekdays, southbound traffic will take the U-turn via the Scenic Drive ramp in Highlands, Phalon said. State and local police will be on hand to help with traffic flow, she said.

The U.S. Coast Guard will limit bridge openings to once an hour instead of twice an hour between noon and 7 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays from May 15 through Sept. 15, Phalon said. Engineers hope the restrictions alleviate traffic congestion on the busy weekends and holidays.

Still, Feeney, the National Park Service spokesman, advised motorists to avoid the peak period for leaving the park after 2 p.m. State lawmakers last year persuaded the DOT to delay partial demolition of the bridge, which was expected to begin last June, until after the July 4 holiday. The southbound lanes have been demolished, leaving just one lane in each direction.

"The bridge is at 50 percent capacity," he said. "Until the bridge project is complete, people can expect delays both entering and exiting the park."

Sandy Hook Traffic Cameras

Sandy Hook might have the worst traffic ever because of the bridge construction.  But they now have Web Cams watching the Traffic so you will know before you go.  Below are links to three web cams that focus on route 36 as you head into sandy hook and eventually Gunnison Beach.

The Bridge

In checking with the ever alert NJDOT, we discovered that they expect to have the bridge construction completed by the Summer of 2011...
Good Luck !!!
