Atlantic County is moving ahead with a project to repave part of Tilton Road after receiving a Department of Transportation grant.

The county received a $215,000 grant recently for inspection services for the third and final phase of the project to repave all of Tilton Road from Shore Road to the White Horse Pike in Galloway.

The third phase will pave from Burton Avenue in Northfield and Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township.

The DOT must now approve a $1.44 million contract to Arawak Paving Co. of Hammonton to do the project.

The county could begin by late August and is expected to last three months or less. All paving will be done between 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays.
