Bridge 37 on the Berlin-Cross Keys Road will close beginning 12:01 a.m. Monday, April 27, 2009. The bridge will remain closed until 5:00 a.m. on Friday, May 1, 2009. Work on the Atlantic City Expressway underneath the bridge is continuing but will have no impact on traffic.
The nine month widening project, which remains on schedule, will improve safety and reduce congestion on the ramps to the Expressway. Other closures will occur later when beams are being set to widen the Bridge. These closures will be during nighttime hours between Tuesday and Thursday 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Notice for these closures, slowdowns and/or lane shifts will be at least 7 days in advance utilizing on site Variable Message Signs (VMS). The closures are tentatively scheduled to start about the last week of June.
