The unofficial start of the summer season is less than two weeks away, and the schedule for road work on Barnegat Avenue in Surf City has been updated – again. The timeframe for the road work, which includes curbing, milling, paving and drainage, has been pushed back because of inclement weather earlier this year.

The weather hasn’t impacted just the project, but the contractor, CJ Hesse, as well, which is handling phases three and four of the Barnegat Avenue road improvement project. The contractor’s road work crews are behind schedule, and that means a new schedule for the work in the borough, Councilwoman Jacqueline Siciliano said last week. Hesse is performing the work in the area of 11th through Fifth streets.

Cleanup of the area began May 8 and is expected to be completed on or around May 29, she said. The pave intermediate leveling course is scheduled to begin May 29 and conclude May 30 with milling and pave surfacing slated for May 31 and June 1. The repair stripping is scheduled for June 4-5 with the final striping for the project expected June 11-12, according to the councilwoman.

Phase five of the project includes concrete work, milling, paving and striping from Fifth Street to Third Street. Siciliano said. The concrete work began last week, she said. Milling of the roadway is currently scheduled for May 18. Paving is next on the to-do list with an anticipated May 21-22 time. Striping is the final piece, and is slated for once paving has been completed, according to Siciliano. The work for this project is being performed by Earle Construction.

The start and end dates of any roadwork project are weather dependent, she said. —G.G.S.
