Jersey Central Power & Light’s $124 million Oceanview Reinforcement Project has gone into service, the utility announced Tuesday.

A transmission line serving more than 180,000 customers in Monmouth County’s Colts Neck, Howell, Neptune, Tinton Falls and Wall has been energized, JCP&L said in a news release. The project represents the second transmission project in Monmouth County to recently enter service in advance of the high-use summer months, the utility added. A line connecting substations in the Eatontown area was energized in May.

The Oceanview project includes the building of a 16-mile transmission line connecting substations in Howell and Neptune, as well as the rebuilding of a line connecting substations in Colts Neck and Neptune. Circuit breakers and other equipment were installed at the various substations, as well.

“This vital infrastructure enhancement project was completed in a timely and efficient manner thanks to the cooperation we received from multiple municipal, county and state officials and agencies,” Mark Jones, JCP&L’s vice president of operations, said in a prepared statement. “The project will help provide safe and reliable electric service to our customers, this summer and in the future.”

The projects are part of a $359 million infrastructure investment plan, the utility said.

JCP&L, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., serves 1.1 million total customers spread across 13 of the state’s 21 counties, primarily in the northern and central New Jersey areas.
