Atlantic City airport to spend $4.2M on design contract for new roads

17 Nov


EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Plans for roads to whisk travelers more quickly to Atlantic City International Airport more are moving forward.

The South Jersey Transportation Authority has approved a $4.2 million design contract for the roads. The entire construction project should cost between $40 million and $50 million.

The connector would consist of a series of roads and bridges to get vehicles to the airport and the NextGen Aviation Research & Technology Park, while avoiding local traffic.

The project still needs state and federal approval.

The authority tells The Press of Atlantic City the new access roads are needed to handle projected growth at the airport and the technology center on its grounds. The airport is doing a 75,000-square-foot expansion that includes a federal inspection station for international flights.
