Capital Projects Bay Avenue Force Main
Updated 1 p.m. May 21, 2021

Final pavement restoration has been completed. It is expected that new pavement striping and marking will be done on Friday (May 21). Once striping and marking have been completed, this project will be deemed essentially complete. Punch list work is scheduled to be completed next week. Should traffic control be required during the completion of punch list work, it will be done with local lane shifts. Otherwise, Bay Avenue will be completely open to two lanes of traffic. 

This will be my final status report. Thank you all and the Ocean City part- and full-time residents for your patience and cooperation throughout this project.
