The City of Atlantic City has worked diligently to establish a grand vision and set of goals for its revitalization as it continues to build upon the unique heritage as a major seaside tourist destination with a diverse population. One of the key goals outlined in the Downtown Revitalization Plan was reconnecting Atlantic City to Atlantic Avenue, which is often referred to as Atlantic City’s Main Street. Currently one of the state’s most dangerous corridors for pedestrian safety, the City received a Federal Grant to address the many issues facing Atlantic Avenue.

 

Arterial, along with Marathon Engineering & Environmental Services, led the effort to design and plan a well-balanced Complete Street that accommodates a variety of users from cars and pedestrians to buses, taxis and bicyclists. Inspired by its history and proximity to the ocean, granite plank pavers highlight the corners and amenity zone along the sidewalk where street trees are strategically placed to minimize impact to storefronts. Corner bump-outs were designed to allow for the implementation of a future protected two-way cycle track along with shortening the crossing distance for pedestrians. High visibility crosswalks were designed as an artistic expression of the City’s popular tourism campaign. Other key elements of this streetscape include pedestrian light fixtures, street furniture and ADA-compliant curb ramps.
