It is now easier to get in and out of Ocean City. The Route 52 causeway has reopened to four lanes for the summer. Roadwork has been going on at the causeway during the winter months as a part of a plan to replace two of the bridges and eliminate the circle in Somers Point. Work is halted in the summer months when tourism is at its height and the extra lane is needed. The project is expected to be completed by 2012.
