They finished upgrading a portion of West New York’s aging gas lines, ensuring the ongoing safety and reliability of its gas system for years to come.
Now that the ground has settled, Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) crews will be paving the roads from June 19 through July 7, as weather permits.
According to Joe Forline, vice president of gas operations, the upgrades are part of PSE&G’s three-year program to replace 510 miles of aging gas infrastructure throughout New Jersey.
“We appreciate the patience of our customers and excellent partnership with local officials as we complete this work,” Forline says.
“Our goal is to restore roads with minimal impact to residents.”
Police will be directing traffic around work areas, and residents will be able to drive on the roads once paving is complete.

“The cooperation throughout the past year between PSE&G, the town and our community has been incredible,” says Dr. Felix Roque, the mayor of West New York.
Roque says they are always working to improve the health and safety of residents, while also working to improve local roads.
