Construction To Resume On Route 35 After Labor Day Motorists
Should Be Alert For Multiple Work Zones Throughout The
The New Jersey Department of
Transportation (NJDOT) today announced construction to
rebuild Route 35 will resume on Tuesday, September 2. The
Department suspended its construction on Route 35 during the
busy summer season to minimize the inconvenience to
businesses, residents, and vacationers who make the Jersey
Shore a prime tourist destination between Memorial Day and
Labor Day. Route 35, which is the backbone of the Barnegat
Peninsula, was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The
project began last summer and substantial progress has been
made, including the complete reconstruction of the
interchange between Route 37 and Route 35 that serves as a
primary way on and off the peninsula.

The purpose of this program is to empower the local, private, and corporate
with the knowledge and ability to assist law enforcement. Civilians can
assist by identifying observed criminal or terrorist behaviors, and alerting
law enforcement. This information is then entered into the Statewide Intelligence
Management System (SIMS). The SIMS database is used to collect and share
information on suspected involvement in all types of criminal activity.
SIMS allows agencies to store intelligence for their own use or for the
use of the broader law enforcement community.
