The next phase of the PSE&G project to replace aging gas pipes in locations throughout Summit is scheduled to begin on or about March 13 and continue through the end of June 2023. Upgrades to gas service in Summit are essential for the utility to continue to support a safe, clean, and reliable gas system in the future.
In this phase of the project, work will significantly impact the Central Retail Business District and include daytime work from 8AM to 5PM and overnight work from 8PM to 5AM on sections of Springfield Avenue, Maple Street, Beechwood Road, and Woodland Avenue, Deforest Avenue and Kent Place Boulevard in downtown Summit.
