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

FOLSOM, N.J., September 28, 2017 – South Jersey Gas advises residents, business owners and motorists in the City of Brigantine Beach that construction work will begin on or about Monday, Oct. 9 (weather permitting) to enhance its infrastructure as part of the Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program. The work is expected to be completed by April 2018.

Installation of 2-inch and 6-inch yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along West Brigantine Avenue from 12th Street South to 26th Street South. Work will also be performed on side streets, including 11th Street South, 12th Street South, 13th Street South, 14th Street South, 15th Street South, 16th Street South, 17th Street South, 18th Street South, 19th Street South, 20th Street South, 21st Street South, 22nd Street South, 23rd Street South, 24th Street South, 25th Street South, Bayshore Avenue, Revere Boulevard and Ocean Avenue. Work on 25th Street South will be completed first, followed by the side streets.

To ensure safe travel, there will be lane closures with appropriate traffic control personnel directing motorists and pedestrians around all work. In addition, there may be some road closures on select narrow side streets where work will be performed. Residents and businesses along these streets will have access to and from their properties at all times.

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 spring 2018. All restorations are completed in compliance with local and county regulations.

South Jersey Gas or its contractor will contact customers to gain access to properties with gas service to complete this work. Work will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. There is a possibility that work will be performed some Saturdays during the same time frame.

If residents have questions or would like more information about this project, please contact the South Jersey Gas Atlantic Division at (609) 645-2690 and reference the Brigantine II Project.
