New Jersey officials hope they have come up with a sufficient plan to prevent a repeat of an epic traffic jam along the northern Ocean County barrier island when the Seaside Heights St. Patrick's Day parade steps off this Saturday.

A winter swimming event to raise money for charity brought traffic in the region to a standstill for more than three hours two weeks ago.

The main reason was an ongoing project to rebuild Route 35 from damage it sustained in Superstorm Sandy.

The roadway is the second busiest highway at the northern Ocean County shore.

Extra lanes, traffic monitors, adjustable lights and a major effort to encourage motorists to use Route 37 instead of Route 35 to leave the area are part of the plan.
