STATE: ROUTE 52 CA– USEWAY TO STAY OPEN THIS WINTER

The New Jersey Department of Transportation today announced that the Route 52 Causeway will remain open to traffic throughout the winter as construction proceeds on the project to replace the span linking Somers Point (Atlantic County) and Ocean City (Cape May County).

The decision to make no changes to traffic patterns followed a meeting on Monday during which the Department sought input from elected officials and business owners on a proposal to temporarily close the bridge for approximately two months to speed construction.

“After careful consideration of our options as well as public input, the Department has decided to make no changes to existing traffic patterns, and we will continue to work closely with our contractor to ensure that the bridge capacity needed for the busy summer season is available,” said NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson.

The plan remains to complete work on a southbound fixed span at the Ocean City end of the project by late June, and provide motorists with the normal two travel lanes across the causeway in each direction.
