Gas Main Replacement Update for Fanwood


FANWOOD, NJ -- A representative from Elizabethtown Gas attended the Fanwood Council meeting on Tuesday, March 21, to update the borough on the gas main replacement projects taking place in the borough this spring.

A second, larger project will encompass most of the southwest quadrant: Belvidere Ave., Burns Way, Carsam St., Chetwood Terrace, Coriell Ave., Cray Terrace, Crest Lane, Helen Street, Herbert Ave., MacDermott Place, Marian Ave., Robin Road, 2nd St., Terrill Road, and Vinton Circle.

The project will replace the gas main running down each street by digging a trench, then filling it back in once the main is replaced. The second phase of the project will involve installing new gas service lines to each, individual home. For most residents with indoor gas meters, this will mean your meter will be moved outside. It may also mean that part of your front lawn, sidewalk or driveway may be dug up to accomplish running the new service line. If that’s the case, Elizabethtown Gas promises to repair and replace any such digging to restore your property to the way it was before the work.
