Atlantic County Bridge Replacement Receives National Recognition

Atlantic County’s $12.5 million reconstruction of Old New York Road over the Nacote Creek Bridge in Port Republic has received national distinction for exceptional engineering excellence by the American Council of Engineering Companies. The project will be recognized at an awards program on May 15, 2024 in Washington, D.C.

“This is an exceptional honor for which we are justifiably proud,” stated County Executive Dennis Levinson. “Road improvements cause temporary inconveniences which are not always popular with the public, despite their need. This type of recognition should bring all of us a great deal of satisfaction.”

The new bridge maintains the original alignment and incorporates additional shoulder widths of 5’ for a total roadway width of 34-ft.  It also includes a sidewalk on the southbound side of the bridge.  A reconfiguration of the Pitney Road, Riverside Drive and Old New York Road intersection was constructed as part of the project to address safety and traffic flow.  

The county contracted with Michael Baker International for the project’s engineering design services.
