In a brief filed Wednesday, lawyers for the city argued that safety is paramount in going forward with the Atlantic Avenue “road diet,” and said the city does not need the approval of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority to complete the project.

Five beachfront casinos have joined with AtlantiCare in suing to try to stop the reconfiguring of Atlantic Avenue to two vehicle travel lanes from four, with center turning lanes.

Assignment Judge Michael Blee will hear oral arguments at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 26, according to court documents.

The suit, Boardwalk Regency, et al vs. the City of Atlantic City, was filed last month and its brief updated Wednesday by attorney Keith Davis.
