HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Public Service Electric & Gas is installing new gas lines on portions of Camplain Road, Triangle and South Triangle Roads, New Amwell Road, Meadowbrook Drive and adjoining roads, Lynn Court, and along Route 206.
The new gas lines along Route 206 are larger in size than those being replaced, allowing higher pressures on side roads, requiring the utility to update the surrounding roads to meet safety standards. This project also requires gas meters to now be installed on the exterior of structures instead of in basements.
PSE&G did not determine these gas upgrades were necessary until early last year after which time the township had repaved some of the affected roadways.
PSE&G will be responsible for repaving disturbed roads.
Due to the winter months, the project is moving slowly. Some of the contractor crews have shut down for the winter. It is common to see some trench repairs settle so the Engineering Department is monitoring the trenches through the winter and requiring that PSE&G provide temporary patching.
Most of the gas mains are completed to date; service lines and meter relocations are underway. PSE&G indicates this will not be fully completed until late spring.
