WOODLAND PARK, NJ - PSE&G has announced that over the next two weeks work crews will be replacing gas services on Rose Place, Highview Drive, and Weaseldrift Road.
This work, which requires limited digging up of roads because of its proximity to homeowners’ property lines, is part of the utility’s town-wide project to make gas delivery to local homes and businesses safer, cleaner and more efficient.
The project, started in August 2019, is part of PSE&G’s Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP), and includes the replacement of nearly nine-and-a-half miles of cast iron pipes with new, more durable, plastic pipes. Delayed because of the COVID-19 outbreak, work is expected to continue through the summer and is performed weather permitting.
Following the installation of new main and services, technicians schedule times with homeowners to connect their service to the new system, during which time customers can expect to lose service for about four hours. Gas meters will be relocated to the outside of the property, and technicians will relight all appliances and ensure that they are working properly before leaving the premises.
