Those who use this road everyday to travel between the two communties and beyond are in for a nice surprise. No longer will your teeth rattle when you cross the bridge as the ruts and pot holes have been replaced by a nice smooth concrete highway.
MAY 14, 2014 --The lane shift on the Broadway Bridge (CR 551) connecting Gloucester City and Brooklawn was completed around noon today. Work will now begin on the other side of the structure. The demolition and reconstruction of the bridge was suppose to begin in early 2012, but work did not start until August 2012. The original plans also called for the work to be completed in 15 months.

The cost of the project is $4,154,144. Besides new decking and parapets, the plans call for new bridge approaches, new pedestrian sidewalks, new guide rails, traffic striping and roadway markings.
