It'll be a little bit busy on some roads during the weekday, workday hours in parts of Lakewood, Neptune, and Long Branch coming up as New Jersey American Water has announced the next project in the replacement of water mains in these communities.

There are water mains that have been in these three municipalities since the roaring 20s and so they need an upgrade for everyone's health and safety.

New Jersey American Water said they will replace more than four miles worth of this cement and cast-iron water main with a new ductile iron main as well as replace 14 fire hydrants and 305 utility-owned service lines in these areas along with any customer-owned service line that the state has deemed to have lead or been galvanized.
