If you can possibly avoid driving on Route 35 south through the Bay Head-Mantoloking area this morning, it would probably be a good idea.
A crew is starting to work on a house that needs to be demolished and moved out of Barnegat Bay.
Traffic continues to be heavy on the state highway and it's not yet known when it will clear up, Mantoloking police said on Thursday morning.
"Two road jobs" and the state work on the house press are contributing to the congestion, police said.
The state Department of Transportation is holding a press conference about the state's plan to begin dismantling a house that Superstorm Sandy flung into Barnegat Bay.
A press release issued on Wednesday states: "Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin will be in Mantoloking to highlight the Christie Administration’s waterway debris removal efforts. Immediately following his comments, demolition will begin on a home that was swept into Barnegat Bay by Superstorm Sandy.
"Media outlets are invited to document the event from the west end of Lyman Street in Mantoloking, where Commissioner Martin will speak. The home that is being removed is in Barnegat Bay, approximately 200 feet from the shoreline."
Patch will have a story later today about action taken on the house.
