PSE&G will be stating work on the replacement of utility lines to improve the reliability of the electric service network. Work will be on NJ Hwy Route 31, Hopewell-Pennington Road (CR 654), Moore’s Mill Mount Rose Road and Pennington Rocky Hill Road. Affected residents along the project route will be individually contacted by PSE&G. Additional general information can be found below.
PSE&G will begin upgrading the electric system in your neighborhood to provide safe, reliable service. Construction crews will soon begin actively working on the PSE&G and public rights of way in Hopewell Township and Pennington Borough.
Because customers like you rely on electric and gas to power their daily lives, PSE&G is considered an essential service. As we continue this critical work to keep the power system safe and reliable, we are taking prudent measures and maintaining safety as our number one priority.
Beginning on or about Monday, February 22, 2021 PSE&G crews and our approved contractors will be upgrading and replacing utility poles and electric wire along Route 31 (Pennington Road). Crews will progress along Pennington Hopewell Road, Moores Mill Mt Rose Road and Pennington Rocky Hill Road. Work activities will continue intermittently throughout 2021. Work hours will be between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as some nights and weekends, as needed. All schedules are estimates, weather dependent and subject to change.
To safely complete this portion of work lane shifts with flaggers will be utilized. PSE&G will work with the local police department to minimize any traffic concerns or inconveniences to the public.
In advance of the overhead construction activities, we may trim and/or remove trees along the route in compliance with the Board of Public Utilities’ Vegetation Management Rules. This may include trees in the public rights of way and on private property. If you are the owner of a tree on private property, you will be contacted by our Vegetation Management Department or one of our approved contractors.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interest of maintaining the safety of our customers, our employees, and their families, PSE&G workers and PSE&G contractors follow safety guidelines put into place by the CDC and NJ State Department of Health, as well as all directives from the Governor’s Office and county/municipal governments. This includes that our workers practice social distancing and we ask that you also maintain a safe distance from our crews. PSE&G will not need to enter your home or business because of this work.
Safety is our highest priority. It is essential that you and everyone using your property, including children and pets, refrain from going near our construction work zones. Should you have any questions, please call our project hotline at 1-800-606-0045 or visit the transmission website at www.pseg.com/69kv.
