PSE&G construction happening in Hopewell Township this week

UPDATE: PSE&G construction on Carter Road will pause until mid-October so the trenches can settle before paving. Contractors will return at that time to repave the road. While the upgraded electric system is now in service, the restoration work and final paving of the road still remains. Carter Road will be repaved curb-to-curb the entire length of the project area in late October 2021. Additional notifications will be sent prior to the start of any paving activity.
