The County of Cape May’s construction of a temporary road that will service the Avalon portion of Ocean Drive leading to the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge will begin on Monday, April 15th. The county anticipates the construction of the temporary road will conclude on or about Friday, April 26th.
Avalon Police Chief William McCormick attended a meeting on Friday, April 12th that provided details of the project. Chief McCormick advises residents and visitors that both pedestrians and individuals on bicycles will be prohibited from the work area for safety reasons due to heavy trucks and equipment. The hours of construction on some days may begin as early as 6:00am and end at 6pm, or later, if required.
