Weight & Speed Limit Restrictions on 96th Street Bridge 

The Cape May County Engineer has determined that based on the results of the most recent inspections a weight restriction on the 96th Street Bridge will be placed into effect immediately.

The 96th Street Bridge over the Great Channel will be load posted to restrict vehicles in excess of 15 tons gross weight from using the bridge. In addition, vehicles less than 15 tons gross weight are reminded that the bridge speed is 30 MPH.

Impact conditions resulting from speeding vehicles also continue to be an issue and the public is encouraged to cross the bridge while obeying the posted speed.

Vehicles in excess of 15 tons will be required to access Stone Harbor via Avalon Boulevard (C.R. 601).

Due to the current re-decking of the Ingram’s Thorofare Bridge (coming into Avalon), oversized vehicles wider than 11’-0” will not be able to cross the bridge until May 7, 2020. All other vehicles will be able to cross the Ingram’s Thorofare bridge without restriction.

The County of Cape May regrets having to load post the bridge however the safety of the travelling public is paramount.
