North End Project Update – Aug. 10, 2018

North End Project Update – Aug. 10, 2018

A photo taken earlier in August shows construction work on Third Street.


  • Feriozzi Concrete will continue work on Third Street between West Avenue and Bay Avenue, restoring elevated curb, gutter and sidewalks.
  •  Pipe crews will finish installing inlets and main on Sixth Street. Crews will also be starting work on Seventh Street.


The North End Drainage Project was awarded through City Council on December 28, 2017 to the contractor L. Feriozzi Concrete Co. As a result of the city letting the contractor work during the summer, the contractor has made tremendous progress and is moving significantly faster. Allowing the contractor to work during the summer has also resulted in rapid response time from the utility companies. This is especially true with South Jersey Gas, since gas can’t be shut off without the homeowner present after October 1.
