PATERSON, NJ - PSE&G has announced that over the next two weeks work crews will be replacing gas mains on: 

  • 20th Ave. near E. 22nd St.
  • Main St. near Green St.
  • Market St. near E. 18th St.

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.

In addition to main installation, PSE&G crews are scheduled to replace services on:

  • 21st Ave near E. 21st St.
  • E.18th St. near Park Ave.

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 due to the pandemic, work is expected to continue into 2021 and is performed weather permitting.
