With the creation of a new southbound Parkway bridge that spans across the Egg Harbor river, access to drag island will be lost forever. The existing plan is to demolish the Rt9 bridge, which spans from SomersPoint-Beesly's Pt. The island has always been accessible, even when the Rt 9 bridge was open. Since the bridge was shut down do to structural problems, the area has been frequently used by people who enjoy the outdoors, and know what a fantastic area the Egg harbor river is. If we don't get our local politicians to push for the repair or replacement of the span, while construction of the parkway span is ongoing, then we will most likely never see access to that area again..EVER!
Please help us save access, and send a message that we do not want all our waterfront access locations to be privatized and off limits.
