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.
The project is separated into three segments and requires overhead transmission modifications within existing PSE&G right of ways. The existing 138kV lattice towers supporting the overhead lines will be replaced with monopoles. Segment IA of the project runs from Metuchen to Brunswick, while Segment IB runs from Brunswick to Trenton. Segment II runs from Trenton to Burlington. This project is anticipated to be in-service in June 2022.
