Drivers using Route 30 to enter or leave Atlantic City next week should plan ahead as a busy bridge will be closed for 30-minute intervals.

The good news is the work is scheduled to happen at night to lessen the impact on motorists.

According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, beginning Monday, February 26th, through Friday, March 1st, evening and overnight work is tentatively scheduled on the Rt. 30 drawbridge over Beach Thorofare.

For the contractor to safely access the work area, traffic will be stopped in both directions for 30 minutes every hour.

Motorists are advised to use the Atlantic City Expressway or the Black Horse Pike/Albany Avenue to avoid delays.
