ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - A new sanitary sewer line is being installed in Middletown from the corner of Route 36 and Navesink Avenue then along Navesink & Monmouth Avenues to Sears Avenue. It replaces an existing sanitary sewer line that runs along Route 36 and has had several leaks in recent years. This work is being done by Mount Construction for the Atlantic Highlands-Highlands Regional Sewerage Authority (AHHRSA).

This underground pipe will go along Navesink & Monmouth Avenues and end on Sears Avenue near its corner with Monmouth Avenue (see Map on back) where it will connect with the existing Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority (TOMSA) collection lines that run under Sears Avenue and then continue on to the Belford treatment plant. Under the NJDEP Wastewater Management Plan, the TOMSA sewerage treatment system has served the three municipalities since 1986; this line will replace the damaged sewerage line that serves Highlands and a part of Middletown.

Construction will start in mid May and is expected to be completed before the end of summer; work hours will be from 7 AM thru 4:30 PM, Monday-Friday. Work will begin at Route 36 and progress down Navesink and Monmouth Avenues to Sears Avenue (work in the school area will not begin until after school closes in June).

The areas excavated each day will be closed and repaved by the end of that day. A final roadway milling and repaving will be done about three months after completion of the work (this is a required waiting period to allow for any ground settling).

Because of existing utility lines already in the road shoulders, this work will generally be in the right lane when going from Route 36 and down Navesink and Monmouth Avenues to Sears Avenue. While lane and road closings and detours will be necessary, efforts will be made to minimize traffic impact whenever possible. Advance notice using electronic signage and additional handouts for residents in the immediate work area will be provided as work progresses; there will also be Middletown Police onsite during construction to assist with traffic safety issues.

Access to side streets and for emergency vehicles and will be maintained at all times but access to individual driveways will be limited during a portion of the day that work is done there. A more detailed notice will be distributed to homes and cars in each work area at least 72 hours before excavation work is done there.
