On or around the week of February 5, Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) will begin to renovate the Irvington Substation as part of the utility’s statewide effort to continue providing safe and reliable electric service. The renovation will involve replacing the roof and windows of the existing building on the property.
With entrances at 983 Springfield Avenue and 1089 Clinton Avenue, parking lanes and sidewalks along both Clinton and Springfield will be closed to accommodate the construction. Work hours for the project will be approximately 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, for the duration of the project, which is scheduled to end in May 2018. There may be unavoidable noise associate with this work.
PSE&G will work in conjunction with the Irvington Police Department and New Jersey Transit to help manage vehicle traffic and rerouted pedestrian flow. Pedestrians walking along the Bus Terminal side of Clinton will be asked to walk on the west side of the street (H&R Block, Wells Fargo) and cross over to the north side of Springfield (S&S Furniture). Transit riders will be able to cross over to a temporary bus shelter, located between Washington Avenue & Springfield, near the parking lot. [see map on back]
For everyone’s safety, PSE&G crews will utilize appropriate work area protection, including police traffic assistance, traffic cones, barriers and utility work signage. We remind all pedestrians to follow the designated walkways and be alert when moving near the PSE&G work site.
Please note the Irvington substation renovation will not interrupt electric service in the area or block/interrupt local businesses. For questions or more information about the project, please call PSE&G’s Electric Reliability Hotline at
