The New Jersey Transportation Authority held a public hearing on Thursday and revealed plans to replace the southbound Garden State Parkway bridge over the Great Egg Harbor Bay. About 50 people attended the information session in Upper Township as NJTA officials talked about the $210 million project that should begin in March, and be completed by the end of 2016. Part of the project will be the demolition of the Beesleys Point bridge. Plans for the new bridge call for a bump-out area for fishermen and also accomodate bicyclists and pedestrians. Bidding on the project will begin in November and a contract will be awarded in January.
