PSE&G is upgrading and replacing a portion of an underground electric transmission circuit in Essex and Union counties. The circuit, which runs through Elizabeth and Newark, connects the utility’s Bayway Switching Station in Elizabeth to its Federal Square Substation in Newark.
In Newark, construction will take place at various spots along Rt. 1&9 Southbound between Elizabeth and Frontage Road. Construction is expected to be completed by May 31.
During this period, utility service to PSE&G customers will continue as usual.
PSE&G has scheduled extended work hours Monday through Friday, with some 24-hour and/or weekend work also expected. The construction dates and scheduled work hours identified are tentative and subject to minimal variations due to the construction process. No major road closings are expected, however lane closures and/or detours will be necessary during construction. Motorists may want to travel an alternate route until the work is completed.
