Please, please, tell us that the existing horrible, uneven, broken-up road will be repaired, and the smooth road surface restored! No matter where I drive in our town, I eventually happen on one of the roads that have been mangled by the Great Gaspipe Project of 2012. I wonder by how much my suspension's lifespan got reduced by driving on South Holland and Holmdel roads for the past few months. The annoying lengthy road closures, combined with the terrible "end result", make driving around very unpleasant and borderline dangerous.

When are you going to repair and repave Laurel Avenue between Route 36 and Middle Road? My car and my back are suffering because of the horrible road conditions resulting from the Great Gaspipe Project of 2012! Please tell us that it will be soon!

The roads of Holmdel that have been dug up are like roads in a 3rd world country.Hopefully, the gas company is responsible for re-paving these streets! gail

Regarding road repaving post-pipeline installation, I reached out to Michael Kinney, spokesman for NJNG. Kinney said that when the trench is dug and the pipe is laid, it is covered with dirt and patched. It takes two months for the patch to settle. After that point, road restoration can be done over the area of the pipe to create a seamless surface. Sometimes this means along the side of the road, and sometimes the center -- it depends where the pipe is located. Because Laurel Avenue was recently done, repaving won't happen until the Fall. -- Christina
