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.
Underground construction activity will take place through Merchantville to add a new 230kV transmission circuit that will connect the Gloucester Switching Station in Gloucester City to the Camden Switching Station in Pennsauken.
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 Borough of Mount Ephraim Police Department to keep traffic impacts to a minimum
