A Bridge With Room For Bikes and Pedestrians

Saturday, November 20 by silvia

From the Atlantic City Press

A bridge (really two two-lane spans) being built to connect Ocean City with Somers Point (near Atlantic City) includes space for both bicyclists and pedestrians as it connects Atlantic and Cape May counties and eliminates some traffic bottlenecks. As an article in the Atlantic City Press notes, bicyclists and pedestrians were forbidden to cross the old causeway, which has virtually no shoulder and no sidewalks. The new bridge will have a 10-foot-wide bike path.

Construction has begun, and the new causeway, which replaces four low bridges on Route 52, should be open in December 2012.
