Please see below statement from PSE&G. Township officials and myself had a meeting this morning, and will continue to meet/discuss this project weekly. Unfortunately we do not expect to have an answer by the initial May 31st timeline. The Township Committee will continue to keep you updated and encourage residents to continue bringing this issue to the attention of other elected officials.
“Over the past few weeks, PSE&G has performed extensive technical analysis regarding construction of the line along the railroad right of way. In addition, a meeting was conducted with railroad representatives last week. The railroad is currently evaluating our potential use of the right of way. While their evaluation is underway, PSE&G continues to examine whether rerouting along the right away would afford us adequate access for construction and ongoing maintenance. This upfront engineering and project coordination is both critical and extremely time intensive.
We are working hard to reach a decision, which will be based upon both feedback from the railroad and our internal analysis on access issues.”
Mayor Patrick Giblin
