PATERSON, NJ - PSE&G will be working to install new gas mains on 22nd Ave at East 22nd Street, 21st Ave at East 30th Street, 21st Ave at East 31st, East 32nd St at Market St, East 30th St at 21st Ave, and Trenton Ave at 23rd Ave.  

This work is part of the utility’s town-wide project 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.

The project, started in December, is part of PSE&G’s Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP), and includes the replacement of  approximately 20 miles of cast iron pipes with new, more durable, plastic pipes. Work is expected to continue throughout 2020 and is performed weather permitting.

Following the installation of new main, 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.
