Commencing shortly after Thanksgiving, PSE&G will be replacing 37,959 feet of gas main, uprating 4,156 feet of gas main, and renewing 890 services in Beverly alone. The renewal of services may include removing gas meters from inside structures, locating them outside, and installing curbstops (curb shut-offs) where none currently exists, and line replacement. The total disturbed areas will cover 68% of our local roads.
It is easier to list the roads not affected at this time…
- Parts of Cherry around the school
- Part of Elizabeth from Pine to Perkins
- Freeman’s Lane
- Front Street from Magnolia to the service alley (Delacove)
- Most of Locust
- Manor Road
- Memorial Avenue
- Railroad Avenue
- Perkins Street
- Parker Street
- Putnum Street from Wheatley to Melbourne & Magnolia to Laurel
- Veterans Drive
- Warren Street from Manor to Delanco
The main replacements will take approximately 4 months (weather permitting). The gas services will take place after the gas mains but plan on that program to roll out in the spring. Final paving will be performed late spring to early summer ending in July or August.
The good news is most of our roads will be repaved through this program. The roads recently paved half-width by New Jersey American Water will now have the second half paved. Roads that are under moratorium (5 years from last paving) will have full-width restoration. All other roads will have half-width restoration.
PSE&G and it’s contractors will be posting notices and placing door hangers on every door. Samples are shown below.
Yard Waste Notice:
The City can not pick up yard waste in anything other than clear bags. Please do not use black or green contractor’s bags nor the brown paper leaf bags for your yard waste.
Do not mix sticks, vines, nor trash in with your grass clippings and leaves. These items should be placed in your regular trash collection with the exception of branches and tree limbs.
Branches and tree limbs will be chipped on Wednesdays… weather permitting. Please do not park in front of brush left curbside for chipping. Public Works will not drag tree limbs around vehicles.
Please make sure all brush is facing the same direction. Brush piles that are tangled, mixed with vines or other debris, will not be chipped. This is for the safety of our personnel and the efficiency of operation.
Brush to be chipped should be no less than four (4) feet in length and no more than 6″ in diameter. We cannot take stumps or bamboo. If you are having a service cut down any trees, they are required to remove the material. The City will no longer chip brush left from tree removal.
Grass and leaves, in clear bags, are picked up on Mondays & Thursdays and chipping operations are on Wednesdays from the first week of March through the end of October; weather permitting.
