Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Department of Transportation Commissioner James Simpson today announced that the construction phase of the $350 million Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Causeway project will begin soon.

The first of four major construction contracts will be advertised for bids tomorrow, with construction starting this spring. Completion is scheduled for 2020.

The 53-year-old causeway that links the mainland to Long Beach Island in Ocean County sustained relatively minor damage during the storm, remaining open at all times.
