Public Service Electric & Gas Company and our contractors have begun construction activities along the existing electric transmission right-of-way in proximity to your property. As you may know from previous correspondence, this activity is part of the Metuchen-Trenton-Burlington Project which is designed to maintain power reliability for electric customers in this region.
The 55-mile reliability project, which runs from PSE&G’s Metuchen Switching Station in Edison to Burlington Switching Station in Burlington, replaces critical infrastructure, including transmission towers and their foundations that have reached their end of life. On average, these transmission facilities are 80-plus years old.
We have completed surveying of the right-of-way, along with verifying subsurface conditions and underground utilities. You may see our crews on the right-of-way building some of the temporary access roads needed to execute construction. Please be aware that equipment and materials, including steel for the replacement structures, may be stored and partially assembled on the right-of-way at various times during the construction period.
All work crews associated with the project will have credentials identifying them as working on behalf of PSE&G. Safety is our highest priority at PSE&G, and it is essential that you and anyone occupying your property refrain from going on the right-of-way during this activity.
We will do our best to minimize any inconvenience to you as we complete this work. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our hotline at 1-888-431-0555.
