Ocean Beach is located on the Barnegat Peninsula along the Jersey Shore,
separating the Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean.
The bay at Ocean Beach Unit 1 is a beautiful place
to watch some of the best sunsets on the east coast.
The lifeguards and the community of Ocean Beach Surf Club
would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Ellen Downes
for making our summer extra special.
Her commitment to the community has helped to make
Ocean Beach Surf Club the pearl of the Jersey Shore.
Ellen, we thank you for all that you do.
You make Ocean Beach Surf Club the best.
We would like to extend our thanks to John and Carol Mahan
for their gift to the Ocean Beach Surf Club community.
John and Carol have long been visitors and are seen every summer enjoying our beach. Their generous gift was put to good use
buying a rescue board for the lifeguards.
I received a brief summary of the road construction schedule.
Please read below...
The Route 35 road construction roadwork and lane closures will
resume-begin on Tuesday September 2 at 12 noon.
Route 35N will see lane closures-road construction from Bond Avenue
north to Curtis Point into the Fall-Winter. The work is 2 phases...one
behind the other...1) excavation and installation of new water mains and
utility piping...2) excavation of the existing road bed, drainage
installation, curbing, road bed reconstruction, and asphalt base paving.
Route 35S will see lane closures from Curtis Point south thru
Mantoloking Shores, Normandy Beach, Ocean Beach. Excavation, storm
drainage and road bed reconstruction will resume and be completed. See
Lane closures should be expected thru Lavallette at the Route 35S
traffic lights-intersections. New traffic signal hardware is to be
installed. The timeline has not been determined at this point.
Work on Route 35N starting at Second Avenue Ortley Beach, will resume
after the Mantoloking-Ocean Beach Route 35S work is basically completed.
Those work crews will move to Ortley Beach and start going north into
Lavallette. This work phase is not expected to start until
mid-winter...depending on the weather.
The proposed work schedule predicts no significant work on Route 35N, in
the Lavallette area from Ortley Beach border to Bond Avenue, until after
Finish paving of the existing town SIDE streets will not happen until
That is all the information I have.... I hope this will provide some
insight to planning your Fall-Winter schedules. Thank you.
