Reliability Project Overview
The Southern Reinforcement Project will add overhead and underground transmission circuits in South Jersey. The project will add two new 230kV overhead transmission circuits and three new 230kV underground circuits. The upgrade will deliver increased electric capacity required by New Jersey business and residents, increase transfer capability, provide better power quality, and reduce transmission system congestion.
Station activity and upgrades commenced 4Q 2012. Overhead and underground construction commenced 2Q 2013. The entire project is estimated to be in-service by 2Q 2015.
Overhead transmission wires will be upgraded to 230kV. Underground construction activity will take place through Gloucester City to add two new 230kV transmission circuits. The first circuit will connect the Gloucester Switching Station in Gloucester City to the Camden Switching Station in Pennsauken. The second circuit will connect the Gloucester Switching Station in Gloucester City to the Cuthbert Boulevard Substation in Cherry Hill. Finally, activity will take place inside the station fence line on PSE&G property at the Gloucester Switching Station.
Construction is ongoing through 2015 and may be scheduled in your area. Please check back periodically for future updates.
When necessary PSE&G will work with the City of Gloucester Police Department to keep traffic impacts to a minimum
