PATERSON, NJ - PSE&G will be working to install new gas mains on 21st Ave at E24th St, E 27th St at 23rd Ave, E 26th St at 23rd Ave, E 28th at Market St, 19th Ave at E25th St, E24th St at 19th Ave and E19th St at 20th Ave.

In addition to gas main replacements, PSE&G crews are also continuing service upgrade work, a process that, because of its proximity to homeowner’s property lines, requires less digging up of roads. This work is expected to take place at 23rd Ave at Kipp Place.

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.
