FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
South Jersey Gas to Begin Construction in Stone Harbor as Part of Safety and Reliability Enhancements
FOLSOM, N.J., February 6, 2017 – South Jersey Gas wants to advise residents, business owners, and motorists in the Borough of Stone Harbor that construction work will begin on or about Monday, February 13 (weather permitting). South Jersey Gas is performing this work to enhance its infrastructure as part of the Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program.
Installation of 2” and 4” yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along Berkley Road, Sunset Drive, Corinthian Drive, Sunrise Drive, Weber Court, 111th Avenue, 110th Avenue, 109th Avenue, 108th Avenue, 107th Avenue, 106th Avenue, 105th Avenue, 104th Avenue, 103rd Avenue, 102nd Avenue, 101st Avenue, 100th Avenue, 99th Avenue, and 98th Avenue. Work on Berkley Road, Sunset Drive, Corinthian Drive, Sunrise Drive, and 99th Avenue will be completed first, followed by the 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 may be temporarily patched with asphalt until final restoration with concrete occurs. Openings made in the grass during the winter season may not be restored until there is warmer weather in order to facilitate grass growth. Final restorations and paving in the area are anticipated to be completed by June 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 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
There is also a possibility that work will be performed with the Borough’s approval during the same timeframe on some Saturdays to accommodate customer appointments. If residents have questions or would like more information about this project, please contact the South Jersey Gas Cape May Division at (609) 465-2900, extension 6250 and reference the Stone Harbor Project.
