Traffic Signal Design of Ocean Heights Avenue and Swift Drive

The intersection of Ocean Heights Avenue and Swift was a dangerous intersection that provided access to two of the township's seven schools, including the school district's transportation department.

Mott Associates was responsible for phase design and construction related engineering services for the realignment of the intersection of Swift Drive. Phase I was to provide a 90 degree intersection with Ocean Heights Avenue and provide a left hand turning lane on the west bound side of Ocean Heights Avenue for school bus traffic entering swift Drive. Phase II of the project also included the widening of Ocean Heights Avenue to create an east bound right hand turn lane, widening of Swift Drive to create a left hand turn lane, installation of concrete work, relocation of all utilities, installation of stormwater infrastructure and the installation of a NJDOT certified traffic signal owned by the County of Atlantic, pedestrian control signal, related signage, roadway striping and roadway restoration to the intersection of Ocean Heights Avenue and Swift Drive in Egg Harbor Township. The total cost of both phases was approximately 1,000,000 dollars.
