A trio of bayside streets in Ortley Beach have been earmarked for elevation in a state transportation funding announcement made this week.
Toms River Township will receive $475,000 to elevate 6th Terrace, Harborside Drive and Spindrift Road. The entirety of Ortley Beach will be milled and repaved as part of a larger township-funded project that is expected to get underway this spring.
The Ortley Beach project was the only project funded in Toms River. In announcing $165 million worth of projects in municipalities statewide, Gov. Phil Murphy credited last year’s 23-cent gas tax increase with allowing the state to effective double its funding from last year.
