The construction of gas lines in the northbound lanes of Route 35 will continue in Brick, Lavallette and a portion of Toms River for the remainder of the summer.

Toms River Mayor Thomas Kelaher said at a township council meeting Tuesday night that he and other local officials participated in a conference call with the state Department of Community Affairs earlier in the day and learned the gas line work along the highway's southbound lanes would be completed this week, but construction in the northbound lanes could last until September.

Contractors for New Jersey Natural Gas will begin work at Bryn Mawr Avenue in Lavallette, then work up through Toms River and Brick.

Crews will work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will always maintain at least one lane open, Kelaher said. The goal, he explained, is to get the gas line work completed by Sept. 2 when contractors for the state will resume a full work schedule on the $230 million reconstruction of the state highway.

On Fridays, said Kelaher, crews will stop working at 2 p.m.

Was in traffic today in the small section just north of Lavallette to do some shopping in Normandy. Not worth it will certainly kill business.
