105 Brooklyn Avenue (corner of Rt. 35 and Brooklyn Ave.)
Lavallee, NJ 08735
The New Jersey Department of Transportaon (NJDOT)cordially welcomes you to a Pre-Construcon PublicInformaon Center for the above project. This meengseeks to inform local property owners of NJDOT’s proposed construcon plans for the reconstrucon of NJ Route 35.
The Route 35 reconstrucon will extendfor 12.5 miles, from Route 35 Milepost(MP) 12.5 to MP 0.0. The MP 12.5northern terminus of the project islocated at the border of Point PleasantBeach Borough. The project extendssouthward along Route 35 through BayHead Borough, Mantoloking Borough,Brick Township, Toms River Township,Lavallee Borough, Seaside HeightsBorough, and Seaside Park Borough,to the MP 0.0 terminus at the entranceto Island Beach State Park in BerkeleyTownship. The enre project is located inOcean County, NJ.Three construcon contracts will be advanced asidened below:
MP 9-12.5
(Mantoloking and Bay Head)
MP 4-9
(Toms River, Lavallee, and Brick)
MP 0-4
(Berkeley, Seaside Park, Seaside Heights,and Toms River)

Superstorm Sandy:
In the early 2000’s, the NJ Department of Transportaon (NJDOT) iniated the design for restoraon improvements along theRoute 35 corridor to address severe pavement distresses and corridor-wide ooding as a result of the age and deterioraonof the pavement and drainage infrastructure, site characteriscs, and dal inuences. During the recent Superstorm Sandy,Route 35 was considerably damaged creang a shi in the project focus to a full roadway reconstrucon.The devastaon along the roadway corridor resulngfrom Superstorm Sandy included roadway breaches,sink holes and voids below the roadway foundaon, andsevere damage to the drainage system such as broken andcollapsed pipes and destroyed oualls. As a result of theextensive damage, NJDOT has determined the need toremove the exisng concrete and asphalt pavements andto fully reconstruct the roadway pavement, as well as tocompletely redesign and reconstruct the drainage systemincluding the construcon of several new undergroundpumping staons.Route 35 is a coastal emergency evacuaon route on thebarrier island between Barnegat Bay and Atlanc Ocean.It is a vital piece of NJDOT’s roadway network and is animportant travel artery along the Jersey Shore. Given itsimportance to the region, NJDOT received federal fundingto rebuild 12.5 miles of Route 35 in Ocean County.
The Route 35 improvements include:
• Full-depth pavement replacement for a 50-yeardesign life• Corridor-wide drainage improvements• Water quality chambers at all drainage oualls• Installaon of check valves at all ouall pipes to pre-vent dal or storm surge backow into the drainage
system
Recognizing the characteriscs of this “seasonal” corridor and theDepartment’s Complete Streetspolicy, this project provides theopportunity to implement pedestrianimprovements. Complete Streetsfeatures, such as sidewalks, enhancedcrosswalks, and Americans with DisabiliesAct (ADA)-compliant ramps, will be built during roadwayconstrucon acvies where there is sucient NJDOTright-of-way. Parking is allowed along the shoulders of Route 35 in most areas. The graphics showing the sharingof shoulders by bicyclists is conceptual at this stage. Detailsof the bicycle accommodaons are being coordinated withthe individual municipalies.

Proposed Improvements:
Pavement –
All pavement will undergo full-depth pavement reconstrucon for a 50-year design life.The roadway prole will be improved to facilitate the collecon of drainage run-o and ride quality.Pavement cross slopes will be increased to improve roadway stormwater collecon.
Drainage –
The current drainage system suered heavy damage by Superstorm Sandy. It will be upgraded to modern standards thatwill be able to handle storms of such intensity that would normally be expected to occur only once in 25 years.Where required, the drainage improvements will alsoinclude subsurface pumping staon at several locaonswithin the project limits. Each pump requires an electricgenerator, which will be housed either on an elevatedplaorm or in a gazebo-like structure located on beach
areas.
New drainage pipes and New Jersey Pollutant DischargeEliminaon System (
NJPDES
)-compliant inlet grates willbe installed in the shoulder areas throughout the enreproject to minimize oatables entering the system.Ouall pipes will be constructed or reconstructed anddal check valves will be installed.Subsurface water quality manufactured treatments devices (MTDs) will be installed beneath exisng paved areas adjacentto the Barnegat Bay beach/shoreline.
Sidewalks/Curbs –
Curbs and sidewalks will be constructed/reconstructed throughout the project except along the southbound roadwaywhere the northbound and southbound lanes diverge in Toms River, Lavallee, and Brick.Curb ramps and sidewalk pedestrian facilies will be constructed to be compliant with the accessibility guidelines of theAmericans with Disabilies Act.
Ulies –
New sanitary sewer lines will be installed to replace exisng clay and asbestos concrete pipe lines that are likely to bedamaged from the roadway reconstrucon.New water lines will be installed to replace exisng asbestos concrete pipe that is likely to be damaged from the roadwayconstrucon.
Trac –
Signalized intersecons will be upgraded to meet current standards.
Bicycle/Pedestrian –
The pavement markings will be adjusted to maintain exisng shoulder parking while allowing for shared bicycle use.Connuous sidewalk will be provided along the northbound roadway.High visibility crosswalks will be constructed at signalized intersecons. Exisng crosswalks at unsignalized interseconswill be replaced.
Landscaping –
Addional landscaping will enhance median areas and the roadside border area along Route 35.
