NJDOT announces lane closures to resume on Route 30
Absecon Boulevard Bridge work continues
The New Jersey Department of Transportation will resume work requiring lane closures on Route 30 as the project to repair the Route 30/Absecon Boulevard Bridge over Beach Thorofare in Atlantic City, Atlantic County progresses.
Temporary single and double-lane closures will resume over the Route 30 bridge starting Friday, September 16. Double lane closures will be restricted to nighttime only. Eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Sunday when required. Westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Sunday when required.
The boat channel will remain open for all boats not requiring a bridge opening. For boats requiring a bridge opening, the U.S. Coast Guard will redirect the waterway traffic to another channel.
The $6 million project, which began construction in April, also includes updating mechanical and electrical systems to the bascule span bridge, reinforcing the retaining walls and painting. Completion is scheduled for March 2012.
