Project: Atlantic City International Airport Reconstruction of Airport Terminal Road and Amelia Earhart Boulevard: Phase 1& Phase 2
Cost: $2,613,781.13

Contractor: South State, Incorporated, of Bridgeton New Jersey
Schedule: Substantial Completion - May 31, 2018

Project Description:

Phase 1 includes the widening and complete reconstruction of Airport Terminal Road from Amelia Earhart Boulevard to ACY’s overflow parking lot.  The project includes the widening of the inbound and outbound lanes from their current single 22 ft lane in each direction to one 12 ft lane and one 15 ft lane each direction, providing a full two-lane loop at the airport.  The project includes the reconstruction of the traffic signal at Amelia Earhart Boulevard to accommodate two right turn exit lanes from Airport Terminal Road onto Amelia Earhart Boulevard as well as accessibility improvements mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The project includes new storm water management facilities and landscaping along Airport Terminal Road as well as architectural screens to shield visibility of ACY’s fuel farm from inbound drivers.  The roughly $2.3M project is under construction and expected to be complete in June 2018.  The project is funded in large part (90%) by a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program administered by FAA’s Airport District Office in Harrisburg, PA.

Phase 2 of the project consists of the re-paving of Amelia Earhart Boulevard for its entire length between Airport Terminal Road and the Delilah/Tilton Road Circle.  This roughly $750k project is under construction and jointly funded by the SJTA and the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center.  The project is expected to be completed in June 2018.
