  • Replace gas main and services on Centre Street @ Irving Place from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Centre Street will be closed except for transportation related to school, emergency responders and clients of assisted services.
  • Replace gas main and services on Mansfield Ave. @ Eighth Street from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Mansfield Ave. will be closed except for transportation related to school, emergency responders and clients of assisted services.

This project is part of the PSE&G Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP) to replace aging cast iron and unprotected steel gas mains in order to support a safe, clean and reliable gas system.

              

The mains and services will be replaced with stronger more durable materials which are much less likely to have leaks and release methane gas.

The new elevated pressure systems also enable the installation of excess flow valves that dramatically reduce gas flow if a service line is damaged, and provide better support for the use of high-efficiency appliances.
