Lane Closures

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is extremely aware to the critical role the Route 72 Bridge plays in the mobility of Long Beach Island (LBI) residents and tourists, the economy of LBI's communities, Ocean County and the State. NJDOT has made every effort to plan construction activities that will minimize the impact on access to and from LBI.

Based on traffic data gathered over past years, the NJDOT has developed an anticipated schedule of various weekday and weekend limits to lane closures on the Route 72 Bridge for different periods throughout the year. NJDOT's contractor will only be permitted to close one lane in each direction at any given time, and will be required to comply with the following:
