    Motorists can now travel between Bay Head and Point Pleasant Beach without having to detour.

    Crews have completed road work on a one block stretch of the coastal thoroughfare at the border of Bay Head and Point Pleasant Beach that began on Nov. 24, the New Jersey Department of Transportation announced.

    The roadway was blocked between the intersection of Delaware Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach to Osborne Avenue in Bay Head to accommodate roadway and drainage reconstruction. 

    Work continues along the entire stretch of Route 35. The state began planning for the project about ten years ago in order to address pavement distress and corridor-wide flooding issues, but severe impacts inflicted by Superstorm Sandy shifted focus to an full roadway reconstruction, according to the NJDOT.
