Streets to Close for Substation Upgrades in Cape May

AC Electric Logo - Use This One

By From Atlantic City Electric

CAPE MAY – Atlantic City Electric is currently upgrading and modernizing its existing substation on Elmira Street in Cape May to improve reliability for thousands of customers in Cape May, West Cape May and Cape May Point, as well as visitors to the region. This new, modern facility will reduce the impacts of severe storms, leading to fewer storm-related outages.
Starting in early September, crews will use a crane for new utility poles, wire and associated energy infrastructure installation in close proximity to the substation. To safely perform this work, Atlantic City Electric is required to close portions of Elmira Street (north of Venice Avenue) and Leaming Avenue (south of Park Boulevard), with no local access, from September 7 through October 15, weather permitting.
Atlantic City Electric is committed to minimizing potential impacts on local traffic, businesses and the community, and appreciates the cooperation and understanding of local residents as it continues to perform this important reliability enhancement work. Completion of the Cape May Substation Reliability Project is expected in its entirety by May 2023. 
For additional information on this project, visit or contact Atlantic City Electric at 609-909-3930 or
