$200 million project to leave smoother road with better drainage in Hurricane Sandy’s wake

Summer’s just about over, and it’s time to get back to work — on Route 35, that is.

The state Department of Transportation on Tuesday will resume the $265 million reconstruction of the Barnegat Peninsula’s main artery, which was largely torn and washed away by Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie’s office announced Thursday.

The project, which began last summer, has been suspended since Memorial Day in most areas to accommodate heavy traffic during the peninsula’s busy summer season.

Work completed so far includes reconstruction of the interchange between Route 37 and Route 35, which provides access to the barrier community.

Christie’s office said work will start next week on the three sections of the project: mileposts 0-4 in Berkeley, Seaside Park, Seaside Heights, and Toms River; mileposts 4-9 in Lavallette, Toms River, and Brick; and mileposts 9-12.5 in Mantoloking and Bay Head.

The roadway will be completely rebuilt, two-feet thick and made of stone and asphalt, for what officials said would be a more stable and smo

Lakewood police said they arrested five people while they tried to control a crowd at a local concert.

LAKEWOOD — Lakewood police said they arrested five people today while trying to break up an unruly crowd at a concert in town.

The incident started late Friday night at the Lake Terrace banquet hall on Oak Street where police received information that a man wanted by Freehold Borough police in connection with the aggravated sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl was in attendance, said Detective Sgt. Greg Staffordsmith.

Staffordsmith said Lakewood police officer Jason Yahr spotted Ricardo Nava in the crowd at a Latin concert at the banquet hall and arrested him without incident. But Nava’s brother, Felix Nava, was arrested after he tried to intervene when his brother was being taken into custody, Staffordsmith said. Felix Nava was charged with obstruction and was released after being served with a summons, Staffordsmith said. Ricardo Nava was taken to the Monmouth County jail in Freehold Borough, he said.

Shortly after that incident, Lakewood officer Geno Messer, pulling into police headquarters from another assignment, saw Felix Nav
