Dear Valued Customer:
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 right of
way in the Township of Florence. 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, October 10, 2022, PSE&G crews and our approved contractors, will be upgrading and replacing utility poles and electric wire along the
- Potts Mill Road, between Old York Road and Route 130
- Seventh Street between Route 130 and Hamilton Avenue
- Hamilton Avenue between Seventh Street and Delaware Avenue
Work hours will be between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as nights and weekends as needed. Construction will take place through the end of the year. To safely complete this portion of work, lane shifts with flaggers will be utilized. Your cooperation with the projects “No Parking” signs will enable the crews to move through your neighborhood
more swiftly. Signs will be posted as needed and removed as crews progress along the street. Roads will be accessible to local residents. 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 will 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.
