Motorists traveling on and off Long Beach Island should anticipate delays due to emergency repairs to a collapsed pipe on Route 72 eastbound in Ship Bottom. The work, performed by state Department of Transportation contractor Mount Construction, involves opening the road and replacing a drainage pipe.

Travel lanes have been shifted to the right until Saturday morning, Aug. 20. The lanes will then be moved to the left for the conclusion of the repairs. Two lanes will be maintained at all times, according to DOT officials, who expect the work to be finished by Sunday.

Advance notification of all traffic pattern changes are being provided to motorists via variable message signs throughout the project area. For real-time travel updates, visit —K.A.E.
