That's been half of the problem for Ocean County's project turning the ROW into a Rail-Trail. Most of the towns are on board for the project, but Lacey has been battling within themselves for years over whether or not to convene the entire width of the ROW to the County or to keep some of the ROW for building a new road.

I recall that it is owned by NJ DOT from Lakehurst to a point just south of Toms River, but I am not 100% sure.
