Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority

Wastewater Force Main Replacement Project

Bay Ave, Ocean City, NJ

Update #20 - Week 1/20/20 through 1/24/20

Active work:

As of the end of the day Friday (1/17/20), the Contractor's South which is progressing in a northward direction, will have installed PVC pipe, backfilled, and temporary paved to a point about 320' south of 21st Street. The contractor's north crew, which is progressing in a southward direction, will have completed the same work to a point about 400' south of 18th Street.


For the weekend (1/18/20 – 1/19/20), Bay Avenue will be open to two lanes of traffic with lane shifts around stored materials and equipment.

On Monday (1/20/20) Bay will be closed from 24th to 14th streets.  

Middle School Activity:

At present, it is expected that, by the end of next week, the north crew will have progressed to a point south of the school's bus port entrance. When that happens, the contractor will be able to barricade off Bay Avenue immediately north of the work zone. This will allow buses to drive south on Bay Avenue and enter the port by turning left, and then exit the port by turning right onto Bay Avenue and drive north. The target date for this is Monday, 1/27/20.

Until that happens, all the traffic patterns and guards that are now in place shall remain in place.
