The Route 52 Causeway project that was scheduled to begin today has been rescheduled. The causeway will now be closed for another day into Thursday. The entire Route 52 Causeway is scheduled to be closed to traffic between Somers Point and Ocean City from 6 a.m. to around 4 p.m. for three consecutive days – Tuesday, December 7, Wednesday, December 8, and Thursday, December 9. The nature of these beam placement operations requires that the work be done during daylight hours. All work is weather dependent.
Motorists who normally would use the Route 52 Causeway will be diverted to the nearby Ocean City-Longport Bridge to the north or the 34th Street Bridge to the south.
