This work coincides with the utility’s city-wide effort to make gas delivery to local homes and businesses safer, cleaner and more efficient. While residents and businesses may experience temporary road closures, local police officers will be on site to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic during this time.

The project, started in December 2019, is part of PSE&G’s Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP), and includes the replacement of nearly 20 miles of cast iron pipes with new, more durable, plastic pipes. Delayed because of the COVID-19 outbreak, work is expected to continue throughout 2020 and  is performed weather permitting.

Following the installation of new main and services, technicians schedule times with homeowners to connect their service to the new system, during which time customers can expect to lose service for about four hours. Gas meters will be relocated to the outside of the property, and technicians will relight all appliances and ensure that they are working properly before leaving the premises.
