RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- PSE&G will begin work  to repair underground lines in River Edge with an eye to a stronger power grid, NorthJersey.com reported.

PSE&G will use the DPW recycling center as a staging area where they will clean the existing pipe and splice in new cable, according to NorthJersey.com. The circuit runs along the New Jersey Transit railroad easement and Pascack Valley lines.

The utility will reline pipes that contain electrical circuitry, replacing cast iron with plastic. The line being refurbished, he said, travels from a switch in New Milford to Hillsdale, going through River Edge on its way, according to NorthJersey.com.

Although the project will begin in September, PSE&G won’t be working continuously, but will be in town several different times for a few days, NorthJersey.com said. PSE&G is in the process of replacing 250 miles of cast iron gas mains that were damaged in Hurricane Irene or Sandy. In 2014, the utility installed over 98 miles of new pipe in 34 towns throughout New Jersey, NorthJersey.com reported.
