Casino Reinvestment Development Authority officials will host a public information session Tuesday on a plan to revamp vehicular and pedestrian signage in Atlantic City.
The meeting with take place at 5:30 p.m. at Dante Hall in Atlantic City when plans for four renamed sectors of the city will be unveiled.
Each sector will have its own symbol and color. The new signage is intended to assist travelers in more easily finding major resort attractions, the CRDA said in a written statement.
The new signs will also aid pedestrians, encouraging foot traffic on and off the Boardwalk. The Atlantic City Tourism District Master Plan completed in 2012 calls for developing Atlantic City as a more walker-friendly destination.
Installation of the new signs is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year. Members of the public will have an opportunity to comment on the designs Tuesday.
The CRDA approved a $300,000 fund reservation in October 2012 that allowed the design process to begin.
Officials have said Atlantic City’s current signage is confusing for tourists. For example, the Atlantic City Expressway connector has a system of lettered exits from A to H, but the exits skip from B to E. No C or D exits exist.
