OCEAN CITY — New Jersey American Water said Tuesday it is planning to replace about 620 feet of wastewater main in the city.
The company's contractor, Pioneer Pipe Contractors Inc., began working last week to improve aging pipelines along Wesley and Ocean avenues from Ninth to 10th streets, installed in the 1920s. Work is presumed to be completed within one month, weather permitting.
Final street restorations will be completed in fall 2022, the company said.
The project is part of New Jersey American Water’s plan to accelerate the renewal of water and wastewater infrastructure in the state.
Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Alternate traffic patterns are possible during work hours.
Access to the construction zone for emergency personnel will be permitted, the company said.
