Atlantic City Council and the state of New Jersey must step up before it’s too late.

Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small has come up with a harebrained scheme to reduce Atlantic Avenue from 4 lanes (2 in each direction) … to just 2 lanes, (1 in each direction).

It’s been conveniently named “road diet”

More than 20 million visitors travel to Atlantic City each and every year. Most arrive by car. Additionally, there are 40,000 residents that rely heavily on Atlantic Avenue during there daily travels.

This traffic lane reconfiguration is unilaterally opposed by everyone that we have talked to … including the staunch opposition of the Casino Association of New Jersey … who recently wrote a very strongly worded letter of opposition to Small.

We interviewed a member of the Atlantic City Council yesterday, who said that Mayor Small “lied to us about this road diet boondoggle.”

We asked the Council Member if they intend to take-up legislation to block the Mayor from proceeding with this terrible idea?

We were told that “we are considering that option right now.”

Atlantic City is presently under the direct control by the state of New Jersey. The state has a role here to stop this bad idea in its tracks.

The Casino Association of New Jersey has learned and confirmed that the City of Atlantic City is preparing to move forward with the Atlantic Avenue lane configuration without even doing a traffic impact study.

We will be visiting on-air tomorrow, Good Friday, April 7, 2023 for the 8:00 a.m. hour with New Jersey Senator Vince Polistina.

Polistina is a highly successful engineer. We will be asking him about his views regarding this latest Small scheme.
