Large-Scale Water Main Repairs Coming to Sea Bright’s Ocean Avenue

SEA BRIGHT: A New Jersey American Water (NJAW) project will begin shortly in the borough and could bring traffic and noise concerns with it.

Borough Engineer Jacki Flor said NJAW is looking to replace “substandard” water mains along Ocean Avenue and some side streets with larger ones as early as the week of Aug. 18.

The project, which should last about two months, will take place between the Rumson-Sea Bright bridge to Osborne Place.

NJAW will begin the project with night construction from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday-Thursday.

Flor said NJAW has offered, because of possible noise disruptions due to the type of equipment being used, to move the project to a daytime schedule after Sept. 15 to coincide with the end of the summer season.

“The DOT won’t let them do the work during the day before Sept. 15,” Flor said.

If the work was moved to a daytime schedule, Flor said it would likely last from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, it therefore create some traffic problems as more cars use Ocean Avenue during the day.

Flor said the council could make a decision on whether or not to move the construction to the day at any time.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (DOT) road paving project on Ocean Avenue is scheduled to begin right after the NJAW project is completed. Flor said there is a chance the DOT could wait until the spring depending on when the NJAW project is completed. She said it also depends on whether the project begins in Long Branch or Sea Bright.

Mayor Dina Long said the borough has been trying to notify each person handling a building project along Ocean Avenue about the water main and road work.
