The closure covers the barrier communities from the Mantoloking Bridge south to Normandy Beach from Monday, December 3 through Friday, December 7 as gas lines are pressurized.

New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) will start pressurizing the gas lines, starting at Downer Avenue in Mantoloking and working their way south to Route 35. Only limited emergency service personnel will be permitted, with enhanced fire and EMS personnel stationed strategically in case of an emergency.

“Although we recognize this to be a major inconvenience for homeowners and contractors, this is necessary and brings us one step closer to getting back to some sense of normalcy,” said the Brick Police Department in a press release.  “This is also an essential measure needed in order to get gas services back to individual homes and more importantly getting residents back into their homes.”

Officials say in the event the utility completes the process prior to December 7th and the area is deemed safe, it will be re-opened to the public without delay.
