A gas line has been struck on Route 35 in Mantoloking as the Route 35 reconstruction project continues.
The line was struck along the highway just north of the point where the roadway splits at the Brick Township border.
A crew from New Jersey Natural Gas was en route to the scene, according to an emergency scanner report. Meanwhile, the Mantoloking Volunteer Fire Company was on scene monitoring the leak. Traffic was expected to be heavier than normal in the area, which is already under construction due to the highway project.
