PSE&G to begin electric system upgrades in Kinnelon

The Susquehanna Roseland electric reliability project is about to begin in the borough and the construction work should have little impact on most residents, but it will delay the start of a Miller Road paving project.

At the Sept. 13 Borough Council work session, Mayor Robert Collins said that he, along with Borough Engineer Paul Darmofalski and Borough Chief Financial Officer Donna Mollineaux, attended a meeting called by Public Service & Gas Company (PSE&G). Collins said work in the borough, where the project will have minimal environmental impact, is scheduled to start at the end of this month.

Collins said the work in the borough will be done off of the Kinnelon Road/Powerville Road area at the Township of Boonton border and in the Pyramid Mountain/Turkey Mountain area. The project calls for the installation of a 500,000-volt transmission line that will be built between Pennsylvania and New Jersey to bolster electric service reliability.
