Access to the barrier island was announced late yesterday and traffic was light early today.
Contractors and residents were able to return to the barrier island on Thursday, Dec. 6, but traffic was light at the Mantoloking Road checkpoint at the foot of the Mantoloking Bridge in Brick. A Brick Township police officer at the scene said the late afternoon announcement yesterday may have made scheduling contractors and other home repair crews difficult to do on such short notice today. The officer said he expects the checkpoint tomorrow to be much busier. Brick Township residents and contractors are able to return to their homes south of the Mantoloking Bridge but have to be off the barrier island by 4 p.m.

A shared services agreement for debris removal with Ocean County will enable Brick to cut previously approved emergency spending for Hurricane Sandy by $10.5 million.
Township Council will vote whether to cut its emergency spending associated with Hurricane Sandy by $10.5 million at Tuesday night's meeting in Town Hall. The reduction to $7.5 million from the previously approved $18 million is due to a shared services agreement with Ocean County, which has a contract with Ashbritt Inc. to handle debris clean-up efforts, according to the Township Council's resolutions that will be up for a vote at the 7 p.m. meeting.

Debris removal costs for municipalities and states are typically reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency after disasters.
