New Traffic Pattern at 9th Street and Bay Avenue

first_imgThe travel route marked in red is now illegal at the intersection of Ninth Street and Bay Avenue in Ocean City, NJ. Southbound vehicles can take a right onto the Route 52 causeway or proceed straight through the intersection (routes marked in green).Effective immediately there will be a new traffic pattern for southbound vehicles at Ninth Street and Bay Avenue, according to the Ocean City Police Department.The new pattern will prohibit southbound traffic leaving the 800 block of Bay Avenue from making a left turn onto eastbound 9th Street. All traffic leaving the 800 block of Bay Avenue will have two options: 1) Proceed southbound into the 900 block of Bay Avenue toward 10th Street, or 2) Turn right onto the Route 52 Causeway toward Somers Point.This change is being put into effect to help eliminate the backup of traffic leaving the 800 block of Bay Avenue and traveling southbound. Vehicles will be allowed to turn eastbound on 10th Street. The new pattern on the county roadway was approved by Cape May County freeholders earlier this week.Officers will be in the area monitoring the new pattern to assist with educating drivers about the new turn restriction.__________Sign up for free Ocean City news updates from OCNJ Daily.__________last_img
