PSE&G will be working in Irvington to make repairs to one of our underground electric circuits. These repairs will take place on Paine Avenue between Chestnut Avenue and Union Avenue. This project will ensure safe and reliable electric service to residents, businesses, and civic facilities in the Irvington community.
Construction activities in Irvington Township are expected to continue through May 2016. During construction, Paine Avenue will be closed between Union Avenue and Chestnut Avenue, except for local traffic. No thru-traffic will be permitted during construction. The construction activities require 24/7 work at the site to ensure safe and prompt repairs to the circuit. All efforts will be made to reduce noise during our construction. However, some unavoidable noise may occur through Friday, April 17 and continue, intermittently, through the completion of repairs.
At PSE&G, the safety of the public and our workers is our primary concern. A robust environmental safety plan will be followed to ensure a safe and environmentally sound construction environment throughout the duration of our work. As such, you may see our on-site construction crew wearing protective clothing, as their work requires them to come in contact with contaminated soil inside the work zone. During construction, it is essential that anyone occupying property in the area, including children and pets, refrain from going near the construction work zones. It is important to note that the area outside the work zone is safe for residents in the community.
PSE&G will work with the Irvington Township Police Department to minimize any traffic concerns or inconvenience to the public. The utility reminds motorists to slow down and follow detour signs when driving through the construction area.
As part of maintaining a safe work area, a small structure will be erected at the intersection of Paine Avenue and Hoffman Avenue. This temporary structure will allow for a controlled work zone and to minimize lighting coming from the construction site. At the completion of this construction activity, this structure will be removed and any necessary restoration will be completed.
We understand that local residents may be interested in this project and its impact. These construction activities will not interrupt electric service in the area. All efforts will be made to minimize inconvenience to Irvington Township residents.
