South Jersey Gas to Begin Construction in Cape May as Part of Storm Hardening FOLSOM, NJ, November 28, 2016 – South Jersey Gas wants to alert residents, business owners, and motorists in Cape May that work will begin on or about Monday, November 28 (weather permitting) to convert the natural gas infrastructure system from lower to higher pressure throughout the City. South Jersey Gas is performing this work to enhance and protect its infrastructure in advance of future significant weather events as part of its Storm Hardening and Reliability Program. Installation of 2”, 4”, 6” and 8” yellow plastic natural gas mains will take place along Massachusetts Avenue, East Avenue, Vermont Avenue, West Avenue, Missouri Avenue, Indiana Avenue, South Street, Philadelphia Avenue, Michigan Avenue, Madison Avenue, Maryland Avenue, Cape May Avenue, Wenonah Avenue, Sewell Avenue, Swan Avenue, Beach
Avenue, Patterson Avenue, Mt. Vernon Avenue, Pacific Avenue, York Avenue, Myrtle Avenue, Windsor
Avenue, 1st Avenue, 5th Avenue, 6th Avenue, Jefferson Street, Howard Street, Lafayette Street, Franklin
Street, Jackson Street, Perry Street, Grant Street, Broadway Street, Mechanic Street, Moore Street, Congress
Street, and Park Boulevard. The program’s primary focus is to upgrade lower operating pressure distribution systems. Lower pressure systems, by nature, are more susceptible to water intrusion during significant storms with flooding
conditions. By upgrading this infrastructure and associated operating pressures, SJG is working to ensure the
continued operation of its system during and after a major storm event. All work is coordinated with the
appropriate local, county, and state entities. All excavations will be restored on a daily basis. A temporary repair will be made in most cases until the final restoration can occur. Openings in concrete may be temporarily patched with asphalt until final restoration with concrete can be scheduled. Openings made in grass in the winter season may not be restored until the spring in order to facilitate grass growth. Final restorations and paving in the area is anticipated to be completed by the Spring of 2017. All restorations are completed in compliance with local and county
regulations. SJG or its contractors will contact customers to gain access to properties with gas service to complete
this work. Crews will work Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. There is also a possibility
that work will be performed with City approval during the same timeframe on some Saturdays to
accommodate customer appointments. If residents have questions or would like more information about this
project, please contact the Cape May Construction Coordinator at (609) 465-2900, extension 6250 and
reference the Cape May project.
