SJ Gas to Begin Construction in Galloway

FOLSOM, N.J., July 28, 2017 – South Jersey Gas advises residents, business owners and motorists in Galloway Township that construction work will begin on or about Monday, Aug. 7 (weather permitting) to enhance its infrastructure as part of the Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program. The work is expected to be completed by November 2017. 

Installation of 2-inch and 8-inch yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along South New York Road, Old Port Republic Road, East Ocean Avenue, East Belmar Avenue, East Pennsylvania Avenue, East Brown Avenue, Old Shore Road, East Dickinson Road, East Great Creek Road, Sharswood Avenue and Biscayne Avenue. 

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 on South New York Road will take place Monday through Thursday, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., in compliance with New Jersey Department of Transportation lane closure restrictions. Work on all other roads will take place Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If residents have questions or would like more information about this project, please contact the South Jersey Gas Atlantic Division at (609) 645-2690 and reference the South New York Road project.
