Roseland

PSE&G and its contractors will begin activity along the right-of-way (ROW) to help strengthen the electric system. In the coming weeks, you may see PSE&G or its contractors along the ROW installing access roads (only matting). This is to allow for access of PSE&G bucket truck to the structures.

The Roseland – Cedar Grove 230kV Reconductor Project is a PJM-approved merchant network upgrade that re-conductors two transmission lines, in parallel, from the PSE&G Roseland Switching Station in Roseland to the PSE&G Cedar Grove Switching Station in Cedar Grove. All of the existing transmission lattice towers will be re-used and reinforced, as needed. There will not be any foundation or other subsurface work at the tower locations. In addition, new hardware and insulators will be installed for the entire length of the lines.

The linear maintenance project is approximately 8 miles in length and runs along the transmission ROW through four municipalities in Essex County (Roseland Borough, West Caldwell Township, the Borough of North Caldwell, the Township of Cedar Grove) and one municipality in Passaic County (the Township of Little Falls). This project is expected to generate minimal noise. This work will take place only within the transmission ROW. The anticipated in-service date for this project is February 2021.

All work crews associated with the project will have credentials identifying them as working on behalf of PSE&G. 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 this activity.

Q4 2020

We are in the process of re-conductoring of two transmission lines, in parallel, from the PSE&G Roseland Switching Station in Roseland to the PSE&G Cedar Grove Switching Station in Cedar Grove. All of the existing transmission lattice towers will be re-used and reinforced, as needed.

Q1 2021

You may see our crews on the right-of-way building temporary access roads needed to execute construction and building foundations for the new structures.

Once completed, we will be erecting the “Y” monopoles. The new transmission structures may be offset from the existing towers, but will remain within the limits of the ROW. 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.  We will also begin the process of removing wire from the exisiting lattice structures.  Road closures will be necessary for this process.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Maintaining proper tree clearance from the power lines is absolutely necessary to assure:

  • The continued safety of homeowners living near the transmission lines,
  • The safety of PSE&G employees and contractors working on the power lines, and
  • The reliability of the electric utility system.

In order to maintain PSE&G’s facilities, the cutting and/or mowing of vegetation brush may be necessary on the transmission right-of-way that crosses your property.  Every effort will be made to minimize the impact on your property.

Roseland - Pleasant Valley

The Roseland – Pleasant Valley Project (RPV) is a $546 million investment designed to strengthen the electric transmission system by replacing older transmission facilities between PSE&G’s Roseland Switching Station in Roseland, N.J., and its Pleasant Valley Switching Station in Hopewell, N.J. On average, these transmission facilities are approximately 90 years old.
