Bay Avenue Construction Closure

Bay Avenue Construction Closure

Construction work will cause detours on Bay Avenue.

Starting on Wednesday, Bay Avenue will be closed from Eighth Street to Ninth Street as part of the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority project to replace the main that carries wastewater to the treatment facility at 46th Street.

Please plan to use West Avenue to travel southbound or to access the outbound lanes of Ninth Street. Southbound traffic on Bay Avenue will be detoured at Eighth Street and northbound traffic at Ninth Street.

This traffic pattern will remain in effect until the county’s work crews can excavate an access pit to make all the necessary tie-ins — approximately a week and a half.

Work continues on other parts of Bay Avenue and 31st Street. To follow updates on this project and to sign up for email notifications, visit
