Sugar Hill bridge repairs to begin this month

Atlantic County will begin a $467,000 road improvement project on Sugar Hill Bridge in Mays Landing as early as March 17, weather permitting, the county said.

The 73-year old structure on Somers Point-Mays Landing Road will receive extensive deck and sidewalk repairs to further extend its use.

A one-way detour will be in place for eastbound traffic only through the completion of this project, expected to be about 2½ months.

Historical Speaker Series continues

The Hamilton Historical Society is continuing its Speaker Series at 7:30 p.m. March 12. The program will be in the Fellowship Hall of the Presbyterian Church, 6001 Main St., Mays Landing.

This month's program is "The 2005 Titanic Expedition," presented by Tom Maddox, president of American Diving Supply. Maddox was a team member of that expedition and will share his experiences along with a slide presentation showing the final resting place of the Titanic.

The program is open to the public and free of charge. Donations will be accepted and refreshments will be served following the lecture.
