PSE&G gas construction update: February 20

Posted on February 16, 2024

2/22 Update: PSE&G will not work on Main Street on Friday, February 23. This change is due to the weather forecast.


Main Street Update: PSE&G will be connecting services on Main Street, from N. Bridge Street to Grove Street, on February 22 and 23. Traffic will shift over in both directions to allow work to take place. No parking will be allowed from 7 am to 4 pm on Thursday and Friday, on both sides of Main Street, from Maple Street to Mechanic Street. Somerville Police may adjust this plan to ensure traffic flows smoothly and safely. We expect PSE&G to continue working on Main Street for approximately 2 more weeks.
