RED BANK, NJ: TAPinto Red Bank recently took a hot and dusty stroll down White Street to see the progress on the road improvement project.
Contractor Shore Top Construction has been digging trenches in the middle of White Street and have finished with the sanitary laterals (pipes from the buildings to the main sewer pipe). The sewer line is estimated to have been built in the 1930s, and parts made of clay.
“The storm sewer lines are in pretty good condition, the water lines in decent condition, the sewer (line) is not.” It’s time to go. This community went from mostly retail to restaurants, so we have backups all the time,” said Public Utilities Director Cliff Keen in a previous statement.
Work should be completed by next week and the pouring of concrete for new curbing, including installation of pavers after July 4. Shore Top was the lowest bidder and awarded a contract in the amount of $902,492.
Once completed, a 90-day settlement period for the sewer pipe trench through July, August and September is required. Milling and paving for a new road surface is expected to begin in October.
Gotta break a lot of eggs to make an omelet.
