South Jersey Gas advises residents, business owners and motorists in Brigantine that construction work will begin on or about Monday, Oct. 9, to enhance the city's infrastructure as part of the Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program. The work is expected to be completed by April 2018.

Installation of 2- and 6-inch yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along Brigantine Avenue from 12th Street South to 26th Street South. Work will also be performed on side streets from 11th Street South to 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 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday. There is a possibility that work will be performed some Saturdays during the same time frame.
