Phase one of the project involved the testing of soil samples and digging of test holes to verify the location of existing gas pipes. As part of Phase two, crews will need to dig trenches along road surfaces to replace nine miles of cast iron pipes with more durable plastic pipes. Short-term road closures and detours may be necessary.
Work is expected to be complete by early summer 2023 depending on project progress over the winter and spring. Visit the PSE&G website to view a list of affected streets. The web page is updated weekly with information on what streets are currently in progress, not yet started, and completed.
Following the installation of new mains, technicians will schedule times with each homeowner to connect their service to the new system that will include a service interruption for approximately four hours. If possible, gas meters will be relocated to an outside location on the property, and technicians will relight all appliances and ensure that they are working properly before leaving the premises.
Police officers will be on site to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Residents will always have access to driveways.
