South Brunswick

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.

December 17 2018 through Spring 2019

PSE&G plans to begin upgrading and replacing the utility poles along Dey Road beginning near Pheasant Hollow Drive and continuing to Rt 130.  This work is expected to begin on or around Monday, December 17 and continue intermittently through the spring 2019.  Work will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as some weekend work, as needed. There are no service outages planned with this work.

2021 Restoration Activity

We have completed have completed the replacement of the new structures and have strung the new power line.  The transmission line is in service.  We are currently in the restoration phase of the project.

Safety is our highest priority at PSE&G, and it is essential that you and anyone occupying your property refrain from going on the right-of-way during these activities.

69kV Initiative

Reliability Project Overview

PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to its utility infrastructure. These enhancements will improve both electric service reliability and system redundancy to ensure safe and reliable service to our customers. Throughout the state of New Jersey, PSE&G infrastructure upgrades will reduce the demand on the existing 26kV network. The projects will install 69kV transmission circuits connecting PSE&G stations around the state.
