Q3 2017 - Q1 2019

We have completed surveying of the right-of-way, along with verifying subsurface conditions and underground utilities.  Over the coming weeks and months, you may see our crews on the right-of-way building temporary access roads, followed by the construction of new foundations needed to erect the new transmission structures.  Please be aware that equipment and materials, including steel for the replacement structures, may be stored and partially assembled on the right-of-way at various times during the construction period.

In advance of the overhead construction activities, the Project 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 right 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. Davey Tree Expert Co., Inc., is a private contractor authorized to perform vegetation management work for PSE&G facilities will be performing this work at no cost to you.
