Great Egg Harbor Bridge Fence To Be Removed

“The Turnpike Authority will begin work on removing the fence this Monday,” says Gov. Chris Christie.

Governor's Office, Tim Larsen

The Christie Administration announced its removal Friday in an effort to appease Egg Harbor residents and visitors who have questioned the fence’s purpose ever since it was built as a security device after 9/11.

The plan is to dig up the one-half mile of fencing between the Great Egg Harbor and Drag Channel Bridges, and use it for right of way fencing on other parts of the GSP.

“I am particularly happy that work removing the fence will begin before Memorial Day and the fence will be used elsewhere,” says Senator Jeff Van Drew.  “Placement of this fence truly bothered residents and visitors alike.”

“I personally want to thank Governor Christie, Chief Counsel McKenna, and Executive Director Hakim for responding to my concerns and those of local residents with this issue.”
