Coastal Highway Lane Closures Planned

OCEAN CITY – Beginning on Monday, March 12, motorists traveling northbound on Coastal Highway at 49th Street will be rerouted to the bus lane as all three northbound lanes will be closed to enable work on the town’s sewer main project.

The lane closure is necessary as the contractor working on the sewer main project along Coastal Highway this winter needs to cross from the southbound fast lane, where work has been occurring all winter, at 49th Street over all three of the northbound lanes to intercept an existing manhole.

The single lane traffic pattern in the northbound bus lane will be in effect on a 24-hour basis for three days depending on weather.
