EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ –With the bulk of the gas main and service replacement work completed in neighborhoods across East Brunswick crews are now focused on taking old gas mains out of service, PSE&G officials announced.

This work has been completed on Cleveland Ave., Harrison Ave., McKinley Ave., Dunham’s Corner Rd., Yates Dr., Burnham Rd., Orchard Ave., and Lakeview Ave. since September 17 and is slated to continue in the coming weeks for areas including Branco Pl., Ainsworth Ave., Hillsdale Rd., Dalston St., Devoes Ln., and 4th St.

While residents and travelers may experience temporary traffic diversions along these stretches, while workers excavate small holes to remove the now unused mains, local police officers will be on hand to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
