New Jersey American Water is investing $1.38 million to replace about 560 feet of aging 6-inch water main and 6,200 feet of aging 8-inch water main in Cherry Hill this fall.
The project includes replacing five fire hydrants and 134 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The company will upgrade the aging water lines, installed as far back as the 1960s, with new ductile iron main along Thornhill Road, Turnbridge Road, Latches Lane, Ramsgate Road, Anvil Court, and Heather Lane.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Pioneer Pipe Contractors, began work this week and expects to finish by the end of December, weather permitting. Final street restorations will be completed in the spring of 2020.
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.
