If your travels take you through Point Pleasant during the next two nights, choose your route and timing wisely. The Route 88 bridge is scheduled to open and close...and open and close...and open and close.

Borough police sent notification today that New Jersey Department of Transportation crews will spend Thursday and Friday overnights checking cables and support apparatus.

The work requires raising and lowering the span every hour, 15 minutes at a time, between 9:30 PM and 5:30 AM.

Heading in from points west, Route 70 to Herbertsville Road is one option that takes you past the span. Route 35 has no scheduled repairs. See updated information about road conditions all over New Jersey here.
