PSE&G will be upgrading the electric system in your neighborhood to continue to provide safe, reliable service. Construction crews will soon begin working in Camden City, as well as Brooklawn and Westville Boroughs. Please note: PSE&G does not expect any service interruptions with this phase of construction.

PSE&G will be replacing and upgrading utility poles beginning in early March 2020 and continuing through June 2021.  Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as some nights and weekends, as needed.  All construction is weather dependent and subject to delay.  Additional notifications will sent prior to the start of construction on your street.

To safely complete this project, detours, road closures, lane shifts and flaggers may be utilized.  PSE&G will work with the local police to minimize any traffic concerns or inconvenience to the public.

In advance of the overhead construction activities, we may 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 rights 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.

Safety is our highest priority.  It is essential that you and everyone using your property, including children and pets, refrain from going near our construction work zones.

Should you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-606-0045.  Please look for construction and outage notifications via email, recorded phone messages and door hanger cards as the project progresses in your neighborhood.
