South Jersey Gas to Upgrade a Portion of Camden County System
for Customer and Infrastructure Reliability

South Jersey Gas received approval from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to conduct an infrastructure upgrade along a five-mile corridor in a portion of Camden County. Work is anticipated to commence in September 2017. 

Project Purpose:
The existing line is limited by size and operating pressure, and therefore not able to efficiently provide adequate natural gas delivery to satisfy Camden and Burlington County residents and businesses on peak demand days. The proposed upgrade will ensure service reliability for customers in these areas, enhancing local and system-wide infrastructure for years to come.

Construction Route:
The upgrade will require temporary construction along three Camden County roads:
  • East Atlantic Avenue
  • Laurel Road
  • Blackwood-Clementon Road

Safety:
At South Jersey Gas, safety is our priority. Keeping our customers, the community, and the environment protected shapes everything we do. 

South Jersey Gas, along with J.F. Kiely Construction, the prequalified contractor working on this project, will follow all required operating standards and procedures to ensure public safety while we complete this work. Click here to learn more about Pipeline Safety.
 
Residents and Businesses along the route:
Natural gas service will continue uninterrupted during the project. Residents and businesses along the project route will have access to and from their properties at all times.
 
Kennedy Hospital:
Aside from expected traffic delays in the area, Kennedy Hospital will remain open and unaffected by this project. 
 
Detour Maps:
Below are detour maps for each of the project phases.

  • These maps will be updated regularly to assist local residents and businesses.
  • Through the detour planning process, South Jersey Gas worked with elected officials and police/EMS/fire departments in each of the affected municipalities, as well as Camden County officials to ensure the safest, most convenient route options for traffic.
