Bay Avenue Construction Update

Motorists should watch out for detours on Bay Avenue during construction work.

The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority is replacing and rehabilitating the force mains that carry wastewater to the treatment plant on the bay at 45th Street. The work will be on 31st Street from Haven Avenue to Bay Avenue and Bay Avenue from 31st Street to Eighth Street.

Work for the week of Oct. 7 to 11:

By the end of the day on Oct. 4, the contractor will have set the final chamber on 31st Street about 40 feet short of Bay Avenue.

All trenches on 31st Street will be backfilled and paved. On Monday, work will begin to turn north onto Bay Avenue. It is expected that one crew will be working between 31st and 30th streets for the duration of the week.


Bay Avenue will be closed between 34th Street and 24th Street. Traffic detours will be established to divert motorists to West Avenue.

The map below depicts the northbound and southbound traffic pattern to be followed. Please obey all established traffic patterns. (Only local traffic will be permitted on Bay Avenue).
