Atlantic Street will be closed between the south side of South State Street and Dock Street

The reconstruction of the Atlantic Street Bridge will result in the closure of Atlantic Street, between the south side of South State Street and Dock Street under the Metro North Railroad Bridge, beginning later this month on Feb. 19. The road will remain closed for the entirety of the project, which is anticipated to be completed in September later this year.

This portion of Atlantic Street will be closed to allow for the installation of a center pier underneath the bridge. The center pier makes it impossible for vehicle traffic to pass through Atlantic Street as it’s being installed, however, pedestrians will still have access. Once installed, the center pier will support the new bridge and Atlantic Street will be widened to allow for three lanes of traffic northbound and three lanes of traffic southbound.

While Atlantic Street is closed, motorists are encouraged to seek alternative routes avoiding Atlantic Street, or using listed detours (photo below). Signage will be placed on the connecting roads to indicate Atlantic Street’s closure.

The new Atlantic Street Bridge will be constructed off-site and rolled into place in early July. The new bridge will be wider and allow for an additional train track dedicated for local train service, as well as a commuter platform and egress stairs.
