A heads-up if you plan on traveling between Avalon and Sea Isle City Thursday night or early Friday morning -- the Townsends Inlet Bridge will be closed due to construction.

Cape May County officials say the bridge will be closed between 7:00 Thursday night and 5:00 Friday morning to allow crews to relocate construction barriers and a temporary traffic signal as the next phase of a bridge railing replacement project gets underway.

When the bridge reopens Friday morning, the southbound lane will continue to be closed to traffic and alternating traffic will be maintained in the northbound lane by a temporary traffic signal. No tolls will be collected.

This multi-phase project involves taking the existing railing down and installing a new standard steel 4-bar railing system. The bridge will have only one lane open until June.
