BRICK – A recent water main break on Mantoloking Road near the site of the former Visitation Relief Center necessitated the patching of the newly-repaved roadway, creating what one resident called a “speed bump.”

During a recent Township Council meeting, Mayor John G. Ducey said the county informed him that New Jersey Natural Gas would be performing maintenance work on areas of Mantoloking Road, further damaging the smooth surface.

The roadway has been marked, and the utility company would be digging a series of small holes for pipe inspection, he said.

In Brick Township, there is a five-year moratorium on digging up the roadway after it has been paved, but before any paving work is begun, township engineer Elissa Commins had the idea to contact every utility – the Municipal Utilities Authority, NJNG, and JCP&L – to formulate a paving plan, Ducey explained.
