Reliability Project Overview

PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to its utility infrastructure. These enhancements will improve both electric service reliability and system redundancy to ensure safe and reliable service to our customers. Throughout the state of New Jersey, PSE&G infrastructure upgrades will reduce the demand on the existing 26kV network. The projects will install 69kV transmission circuits connecting PSE&G stations around the state.

Construction crews have been actively working on the PSE&G and public rights of way in Bloomfield, as well as surrounding communities.  

Activity Overview (Q4 2022)

  • New 69kV circuits will connect the Toney's Brook Substation, located at 109 Washington Street, to the Harvey Switching Station at 125 St. Andrews Blvd in Clifton and to the Lakeside Station at 333 Lakeside Ave in East Orange.
  • Underground construction commenced in the 4th Quarter of 2022.
  • The project is estimated to be completed by the 3rd Quarter of 2023.
  • In addition, the existing Toney's Brook Substation will be upgraded to enhance the electric transmission system's reliability and provide resiliency during severe weather events. This three-year project is expected to be completed in 2023.
  • PSE&G will work with the Bloomfield Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
