NJDOT opens newly reconfigured Route 9/Tilton Road intersection in Northfield

(Trenton) New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Commissioner Kris Kolluri today announced that the redesigned Route 9 and Tilton Road (CR-563) intersection in Northfield Township, Atlantic County opened to traffic on Wednesday, May 17.

“By fulfilling our commitment to open this new intersection in time for Memorial Day, NJDOT will significantly improve safety for motorists traveling to the shore this summer,” said Kolluri.

The $6.9 million, federally funded project widened all four approaches to the intersection. NJDOT improved Route 9 by providing one shared through lane, one right turn lane and one exclusive left turn lane. Tilton Road has been upgraded to provide two through lanes and one exclusive right turn lane southbound and one shared through and right turn lane northbound. The redesigned intersection includes a new traffic signal, pedestrian and bicycle improvements and driveway realignments.

Final roadway striping will be completed over the weekend.
