PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to upgrade its utility infrastructure. These projects include work in existing stations, construction of new stations, and the replacement of aging equipment at these sites.

Beginning on or around Monday, October 25, 2021, PSE&G will start construction of the Mansfield Substation located on Old York Road in Mansfield Township.  The new station will enhance the electric transmission system’s reliability, while helping to ensure safe electrical service to customers in Mansfield Township and neighboring communities.

During construction there will be some unavoidable noise and potential vibrations from the site.  PSE&G will monitor all activities to ensure this work remains within the acceptable limits and will work to minimize adverse impacts to the area. Please note:  PSE&G does not expect this project to cause any service interruptions. 

Work hours will be between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as some nights and weekends, as needed. The station will be in-service by December 2022, with landscaping and final restoration completed by the Spring 2023.  All schedules are estimates, weather dependent and subject to change.

Because customers like you rely on electric and gas to power their daily lives, PSE&G is considered an essential service. As we continue this critical work to keep the power system safe and reliable, we are taking prudent measures and maintaining safety as our number one priority. It is essential that you and anyone using your property, including children and pets, refrain from going near our active work site. PSE&G is coordinating with the local police department to minimize any inconvenience. 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interest of maintaining the safety of our customers, our employees, and their families, PSE&G workers and PSE&G contractors follow safety guidelines put into place by the CDC and NJ State Department of Health, as well as all directives from the Governor’s Office and county/municipal governments. This includes that our workers practice social distancing and we ask that you also maintain a safe distance from our crews. PSE&G will not need to enter your home or business as a result of this work.

If you have any questions about the station project, please call us at 1-800-606-0045.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we improve electric service reliability for your neighborhood and the region.

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.

Metuchen-Trenton-Burlington Project

Reliability Project Overview

The Metuchen-Trenton-Burlington Project (MTB) is a $739M investment designed to strengthen the electric transmission system by replacing 138,000-volt (138kV) circuits with 230,000-volt (230kV) circuits between the PSE&G Metuchen Switching Station in Edison, NJ and the PSE&G Burlington Switching Station in Burlington, NJ.  The project replaces aging infrastructure in 17 municipalities and modifies, upgrades or reconfigures 17 electric stations.
