Great Bay Boulevard in Tuckerton will be closed to non essential traffic for the next couple of days as Atlantic City Electric crew members make repairs along the road.

The road, which leads to Rutgers University Marine field Station, had poles blow off during winter storm Jonas and the university’s building lost power.

The building is currently running on a generator.

“They (the poles) blew away from the roads so it’s not like the roads are impassable but it seems like Atlantic City Electric will have a lot of trucks over there and I know there will many poles to replace,” said Troy Bezak, lieutenant officer for Little Egg Harbor Police Department.

Frank Tedesco, media relations manager for Atlantic City Electric, said that the company was unable to access the area until yesterday and that they’ve been closely coordinating with the university throughout the process.

“We are working today to complete the necessary infrastructure and hope to restore service today,” Tedesco said.

Tedesco also said that the work the company did yesterday, including repairing infrastructure from the storm installing new wires on the Margate bridge, was complete by 5pm yesterday.

Tedesco said the last customer that could safely accept power were restored as of 11pm on Monday.
