If you travel between Avalon and Sea Isle City, plan on going "the long way" for much of April.

According to officials from Cape May County, the Townsends Inlet Bridge will be closing at 7:30 AM on Monday, April 2nd, for approximately three weeks. The closure is to remove an existing railing so a new one can be installed.

Officials say that due to the bridge's narrow lanes, there won't be enough room to do the work while keeping one lane open to traffic. Once this phase of work is done, one lane will reopen to traffic through June.
