Construction is expected to begin Monday on Mill Road between Northfield and Egg Harbor Township; the Maple Run Bridge will be replaced.

The $1 million project will take about three months to complete. A detour will be in place that will direct Mill Road traffic to Zion Road.

Linda Gilmore, a spokesperson for Atlantic County, tells Shore News Today the 75-year old culvert will be removed and a precast concrete arch bridge will take its place. The new bridge will be wider to provide safe access for pedestrians and motorists.
