Atlantic County recently completed roadway improvements that are being funded with approximately $11.6 million in loans from the NJ Transportation Bank, a joint low-rate funding program of the DOT and the NJ I-Bank. In addition, this project created an estimated 139 direct construction jobs.
The project included the improvements to County Road 629, a shore route that passes through the municipalities of Longport Borough, Margate City, Ventnor City, and terminates in Atlantic City. The County Road serves highly seasonal shore communities with vacation homes, beach access, and recreational attractions. There is a significant increase in traffic during the summer as well as high pedestrian and bicycle activity. The scope of the project will include improvements to 28 signalized intersections along County Route 629. Specifically, the work will include surveying intersections and approach roadways, traffic analysis and modeling, signal design, pedestrian and signal infrastructure improvements, utility and stakeholder coordination, signing and striping improvements as well as any other related improvements necessitated by the design.
