PSE&G agreed to a two-for-one infrastructure upgrade, thanks to requests from Highland Park Borough officials.
The utility will be doing a curb-to-curb repaving of every road that has been disturbed in the aging gas line repair project. Generally, PSE&G and other utility companies when doing infrastructure projects are responsible only for paving the portion of the roadway disturbed by the repairs. This time, PSE&G agreed to go the extra mile and give the roadways they worked on a full facelift.
PSE&G has finished upgrading a portion of its aging gas lines in Highland Park, ensuring the continued safety and reliability of its gas system well into the future. Now that the ground has settled, crews will be paving roads through July 20, 2017, weather permitting.
“These upgrades are part of PSE&G’s three-year program to replace 510 miles of aging gas infrastructure throughout New Jersey,” said Joe Forline, vice president – gas operations. “We appreciate the patience of our customers and excellent partnership with local officials as we complete this work. Our goal is to restore roads with minimal impact to residents.”
Police will be directing traffic around work areas, and residents will be able to drive on the roads once paving is complete. Customers will have access to their driveways at all times.

“It is wonderful to have a partner in progress that recognizes the need for streets in Highland Park to be safe for residents to drive, walk, and bike. PSE&G has agreed to repair the streets they disturbed in order to upgrade our gas lines by repaving them from curb to curb,” said Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler.
