Townsend’s Inlet Bridge will re-open Friday afternoon. According to a County notice posted on the Borough of Avalon’s website, the bridge will re-open to vehicular traffic sometime Friday afternoon.

Sea Isle City will host its annual food truck festival this weekend. Nearly 20 food trucks will be involved in the festival that begins Friday and ends Sunday. The event will include some crafters and live music as well.

A new bill has been approved by the State Assembly that would require the owners of Jitney buses to register in each town for which they operate.
