The City of Atlantic City, in partnership with the South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO), New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), and the Federal Highway Administration are committed to improving mobility, reducing congestion, and improving air quality through improvements to transportation infrastructure.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City of Atlantic City received a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) funding to deploy an advanced traffic signal system for the Pacific Avenue corridor from Hartford Avenue to Massachusetts Avenue.
The corridor includes 35 signalized intersections. Initial planning and design work commenced in January 2023, with conceptual level design completed for the corridor.
Proposed improvements include:
New traffic signal controllers
New vehicle detection technology to automatically adjust signal timing based on traffic conditions
Installation of fiber optic communications between the traffic signals and City Hall and the Public Safety Building
Advanced traffic signal system technology software for remote monitoring and control of traffic signal timing by the City of Atlantic City
Atlantic City is currently working with Michael Baker International, Inc. to advance the design of the traffic signal improvements.
