TRAVEL UPDATE – PACIFIC AVENUE PAVING
DURING ATLANTIC CITY AIRSHOW
(Atlantic City, NJ, August 12, 2014) – Atlantic City visitors will have only minor traffic disruptions on Pacific Avenue near Show Central on Wednesday – Airshow day — as workers will be on hiatus from preparing the infrastructure for the Pacific Avenue milling and resurfacing project. The area around Boardwalk Hall from Georgia Avenue to Texas Avenue will have two lanes open in each direction on Wednesday, August 13, and a single lane closure only on the south side of the block between Georgia and Mississippi avenues.
Pedestrians will be able to access the Boardwalk at Mississippi, Florida and Texas avenues without construction detours at the corners.
Work will resume on that section on Thursday, August 14, with traffic patterns leaving one lane open in each direction.
Work will continue Wednesday on Pacific Avenue between States and Maryland, with a single lane of traffic in the Downbeach (west) direction. Two lanes will be available heading Uptown (east).
This current phase of work consists of construction of ADA-compliant pedestrian crossings at the curb, as well as installation of new street lights between Missouri and Texas Avenues. Milling and repaving of Pacific Avenue will be completed in late fall 2014.
Traffic update press releases will be issued periodically to alert drivers and jitney customers as to which blocks will be under construction. Updates will also be posted at www.njcrda.com.
