Dear Neighbor,

Public Service Electric & Gas Company (PSE&G) and our contractors have begun activities along the existing electric transmission right-of-way (ROW) in proximity to your property.  As you may know from previous correspondence, this activity is part of the Roseland – Pleasant Valley Project, which is designed to maintain power reliability for electric customers in this region.

The 52-mile project, which runs from PSE&G’s Roseland Switching Station in Roseland to PSE&G’s Pleasant Valley Switching Station in Hopewell, replaces critical infrastructure, including transmission towers that have reached their end of life and their foundations.  On average, these transmission facilities are 90-plus years old.

We have completed surveying of the right-of-way, along with verifying subsurface conditions and underground utilities.  On or about November 6, you may see our crews on the right-of-way installing temporary access roads. These temporary access roads, either stone or timber matting, allow for our construction traffic and work locations around each transmission structure. Construction of the foundations for the new monopoles with begin approximately two weeks following the start of access road installation. All construction activity will take place within the limits of the ROW. 

All work crews associated with the project will have credentials identifying them as working on behalf of PSE&G.  Safety is our highest priority at PSE&G, and it is essential that you and anyone occupying your property refrain from going on the right-of-way during this activity.

If you have any questions, or become aware of concerns in your community about this project, please call the RPV project hotline at 1-888-378-0788.  For more information about this project, visit
