The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority is replacing and rehabilitating the force mains that carry wastewater to the treatment plant on the bay at 45th Street. The work will be done on 31st Street from Haven Avenue to Bay Avenue and Bay Avenue from 31st Street to Eighth Street.
Work for Jan. 20 to 24:
As of the end of the day Friday, the contractor’s south crew will have installed PVC pipe, backfilled and temporarily paved close to 21st Street. The contractor’s north crew will have completed the same work close to 18th Street.
For the weekend, Bay Avenue will be open to two lanes of traffic, with lane shifts around stored materials and equipment. On Monday, Bay Avenue will be closed from 24th to 14th streets.
Intermediate School Activity:
It is expected that by the end of the week the north crew will have progressed to a point south of the Intermediate 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, Jan. 27. Until that happens, all of the traffic patterns and safeguards that are now in place will continue.
