Sandy Hook Closed Today due to Power Outings

UPDATE: Gateway National Recreation Area has just announced that Sandy Hook is now open and power has been restored.

Sandy Hook Beach and National Park is closed today due to temporary power outings, as well as issues with the sewerage system.

The National Park Services has stated that the federal park will be temporarily closed this morning due to limited power.

Beachgoers have been flocking to the park and beach in droves, causing major, hours-long backups this past weekend on Route 36 in Highlands.

It’s reported that JCPL is currently working on the utility issues, and the state hopes to have the park reopened by this afternoon.
