South Jersey Gas to Begin Construction in Gloucester Township as Part of Safety and Reliability Enhancements

FOLSOM, N.J., June 22, 2017 – South Jersey Gas wants to advise residents, business owners, and motorists in Gloucester Township that construction work will begin on or about Wednesday, July 5 (weather permitting) to enhance its infrastructure as part of the Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program. The work is expected to be completed by November 2017.

Installation of 2” and 4” yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along Sherbrook Boulevard, Sherbrook Circle, Sherbrook Place, Sherbrook Way, Downing Place, Orono Place, Hollyoke Road, Tilford Road (between E. Eaton Place and Sherbrook Boulevard), Clement Drive (from Tilford Road to E. Eaton Place), Signey Lane, Clement Circle, Clement Place, Mardale Drive, Helena Avenue, W. Helena Avenue, Terrace Avenue, Prospect Lane, Prospect Place, Lynnwood Lane, Coronet Lane, Surry Road, E. Eaton Place, and associated side streets.

The program’s primary focus is the accelerated replacement of aging bare steel mains with more durable plastic pipe, providing significant safety and reliability benefits for customers.

All excavations will be restored on a daily basis. A temporary repair will be made in most cases until the final restoration occurs. Openings in concrete will be temporarily patched with asphalt until final restoration with concrete occurs. Final restorations and paving in the area are anticipated to be completed by November 2017. All restorations are completed in compliance with local and county regulations.

South Jersey Gas or its contractors will contact customers to gain access to properties with gas service to complete this work. Crews will work Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. There is also a possibility that work will be performed on some Saturdays to accommodate customer
appointments, with the township’s approval. If residents have questions or would like more information about this project, please contact the South Jersey Gas Waterford Division at (856) 768-2900 and reference the Gloucester Township Grid 2 Project.
