THE TOWNSENDS INLET BRIDGE will close immediately after the summer season so that repair work on seven spans can be completed prior to next Memorial Day.  The spans are located on the Avalon side of the bridge, necessitating the closure to automobile traffic immediately after Labor Day.  With bad weather possible in January and February, and a March 1st deadline for in-water work imposed by the Department of Environmental Protection, delaying the closure to later in September couldn’t be done.  The $8.5 million repair contract was awarded to Agate Construction, which just completed repairs to the 96th Street Bridge in Stone Harbor.

Whales & dolphins put on a spectacular show!  Watch dolphins playing and whales surfacing about 49 miles off Cape May.  The video was shot by Paul Leiser (age 14) on the way home from a recent fishing trip, and later edited by Dan Leiser (age 12).  Skip ahead to 3:45 for a close up view of whales around the boat!
