Veolia announced today the replacement of approximately 8,900 linear feet or about 2 miles of water main on Route 9 in Toms River, NJ, weather permitting. The replacement will provide local businesses and residential customers with improved water quality and reliable water service. Work started on September 12, 2022.
“The opportunity to renew the water main presented itself when the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) advised us about its plans to rehabilitate the well-traveled Route 9 corridor,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Senior Director of Operations. “Recognizing that the water infrastructure from Indian Head Road to Route 70 has reached the end of its useful life, Veolia has coordinated its work with the NJDOT project,” Mastrokalos added.
Veolia said that business and residential customers who are affected by this project can rest assured that NJDOT will post signs about detours and other vehicular traffic patterns during the progress of the project.
“The project is divided into six phases starting from Indian Head Road and proceeding north on Route 9 to the intersection of Route 70,” Mastrokalos said. “Full detours along the course of the NJDOT project will be posted with electronic messages,” he said.
Crews will work during the night from approximately 8 PM to 5 AM, Monday through Friday until the completion of the project.
