  • Street Opening:    

Whenever a property owner, utility or other entity is going to complete work that is within the public right of way a road opening permit is required to be submitted to this office for review approval.  In areas outside of the Ocean Grove Historic District the public right of way consists of the roadway, curbing and sidewalk (if applicable) and driveway apron area.  Typically outside of the Ocean Grove Historic District the Township of Neptune’s property extends beyond the roadway.  Therefore the type of work that would typically require a road opening permit is, driveway aprons, sidewalk, curbing, utility connections, drainage improvements or any work within the public right of way. 

In the Historic District of Ocean Grove a street opening permit is required when working on the curb or within the pavement.  The Township of Neptune does not have a right of way beyond the pavement except for parks and the Broadway median.  For questions regarding this please contact the Department of Engineering.


The street opening permit can be found here.

Utilities
The Department of Engineering coordinates with various utility companies that work throughout the Township.  We meet several times a year to coordinate efforts regarding the Neptune Township Capital Road Program and the utility improvements that may be needed prior to paving.
