~~The New Jersey Turnpike, completed in 1952, is a major thoroughfare traversing the state from northeast to southwest.  From the day it opened, the Turnpike has both facilitated and accelerated economic development in New Jersey, in neighboring municipalities, and throughout the mid-Atlantic region. One of the most heavily travelled highways in the country, the Turnpike has an average daily traffic in excess of 500,000 vehicles.  Yet by 2032, traffic demand is expected to increase by 68% in the northbound direction and an astonishing 92% southbound.

Rt. 52 Bridge Replacement

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) began in Summer 2006 the first part of its $400 million project to replace the Route 52 Causeway bridges and the roadway section between Somers Point and Ocean City, with a 3-mile-long structure connecting these seaside communities. This was one of NJDOT's largest projects and considered critical because it is the emergency evacuation route for Ocean City, NJ.
