PATERSON, NJ - PSE&G has announced that over the next two weeks work crews will be replacing gas mains on:
- E. 18th St near Van Houten St
- Market S near E 18th St
- Jackson St near Washington Ave
- Jackson St. near 20th Ave
- Peach St near Spring St
- Plum St near Spring St
- Van Winkle St near Main St
- Braun St near Chadwick St
- Madison Ave near Cedar.
This work coincides with the utility’s city-wide effort 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.
In addition to main installation, PSE&G crews are scheduled to replace services on:
- 23rd Ave near E. 23rd St
- E. 22nd St near 23rd Ave
- E. 23rd St. and 22nd Ave
- E. 28th St and 22nd Ave
- E. 27th St. and 23rd Ave.
The project, started in December 2019, is part of PSE&G’s Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP), and includes the replacement of nearly 20 miles of cast iron pipes with new, more durable, plastic pipes. Delayed because of the COVID-19 outbreak, work is expected to continue throughout 2020 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.
