New Jersey American Water will replace approximately 2,500 feet of aging wastewater main in Lakewood. The company will upgrade the aging 12-inch PVC wastewater lines with new 15-inch PVC main along Level Lane from James Street to the railroad and Summer Avenue from Prospect Street to the railroad.
The work will take place from 7:30 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday until the job is finished, which is expected to take up to 2 months. Final street restorations will be completed in fall of 2022.
This $4 million investment will continue to advance wastewater service reliability and increase wastewater flows for household use in this community. This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
Project timelines are subject to change due to a variety of factors including weather and availability of supplies. New Jersey American Water encourages customers to sign up for alerts through their MyWater account and follow the company on Facebook and Twitter to receive project updates.
For the public’s and workers’ safety, traffic restrictions and/or alternating traffic patterns are likely to occur during work hours. All emergency vehicles and local traffic will be allowed access during construction. New Jersey American Water values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to take caution in the vicinity of work sites.
