If you use the Atlantic City Connector -- the tunnel between the Atlantic City Expressway and Brigantine -- here's some very important news.

Starting this Monday, May 2nd, the southbound side of the Connector (from the Marina District and Brigantine to the Convention Center) will be closed for ten days until Thursday, May 12th.

If you use the Connector to get from the end of the Atlantic City Expressway to the Marina District and Brigantine, you will not be able to access it by using Exit 1 of the Expressway or from Mississippi Avenue. You will only be able to access the Connector from Bacharach Boulevard behind the Convention Center.

Signs and message boards will be posted to mark detour routes and to assist drivers during the Connector closure.
