Officials Celebrate Oceanic Opening [Video]

The Oceanic Bridge, which connects Rumson and Middletown, reopened Friday after being closed seven months for repairs.

After seven months of repair work and a gathering, replete with speeches and ribbon cutting, the historic did something this morning it hasn’t done all those months — it opened.

Officials, dignitaries and residents of both and Middletown stood right at the foot of the revamped 98-foot moveable portion of the bridge that serves many surrounding communities as horns sounded and each side of the freshly painted green drawbridge rose, marking the official opening of the span to traffic.

Elaine Van Develde wrote this intro and contributed to this report.
