Reliability Project Overview
The Metuchen-Trenton-Burlington Project (MTB) was 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 replaced aging infrastructure in 17 municipalities and modified, upgraded or reconfigured 17 electric stations.
The project was separated into three segments and required overhead transmission modifications within existing PSE&G right of ways. The existing 138kV lattice towers supporting the overhead lines were replaced with monopoles. Segment IA of the project ran from Metuchen to Brunswick, while Segment IB ran from Brunswick to Trenton. Segment II ran from Trenton to Burlington. This project placed in-service in June 2022.
