Drivers in Little Silver, Monmouth County should expect to see road crews during the daily commute for about the next three months as about 1,680 of water main gets dug out and new mains get put in.

New Jersey American Water made an announcement on Tuesday that the contractor they asked to handle the job, Montana Construction Inc., will be hitting the roads of Little Silver starting on Friday to upgrade the 2-inch cast-iron water lines installed during the roaring '20s.

The crews will replace those water lines with 8-inch ductile iron mains along Brook Avenue, Monroe Avenue, and Orchard Place, as well as replacing 31 utility-owned service lines along that pipeline route.

NJAW also said that this is a $600,000 project to make water and water service more reliable and make the water flow better for you at home, and for firefighters putting out flames.

The project is tentatively anticipated to be done in about three months in terms of replacements with final street restorations scheduled to be wrapped up by the fall, at the latest.

You can expect to see crews out on the roads between 7:30 am and 5:00 pm during the week.
