The bridge is currently stuck in the “up” position and cannot be closed.

Christopher Vaz, Seaside Heights Borough Administrator, said eastbound traffic onto the barrier island has been diverted onto the J. Stanley Tunney Bridge, a fixed-span bridge that carries westbound traffic off the island.

The Tunney bridge is now carrying both eastbound and westbound traffic over Barnegat Bay, to and from the island.
