If you plan on traveling to Long Branch this week, take note of potential delays you may expect along Hoey Avenue from Cedar Avenue to Overlook Avenue and the entire length of Reid Street.
New Jersey American Water will replace approximately 2,250 feet of aging water main in Long Branch starting this week. The company will upgrade the aging 2- and 4-inch cast-iron water lines that were installed in the 1920s with new 8-inch ductile iron main.
The project also includes replacing 22 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. Additionally, New Jersey American Water will replace any customer-owned service line that has been identified as lead or galvanized as part of a statewide initiative to remove all lead and galvanized service lines.
