SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. (CBS) – Another big change in South Jersey, the Townsends Inlet Bridge will close September 17 for eight months for extensive repairs.
The $8.6-million-dollar project includes replacing seven of its 27 spans.
Officials in Cape May County would like to replace the 80-year-old bridge, but that would cost an estimated $155-million-dollars.
The bridge was closed in April for emergency repairs after inspectors spotted structural damage in the pilings.
