PSE&G to Host Information Sessions for Upcoming Project

On or around April 15th, 2024, contractors for Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) will begin work on a remediation project, located at the parking lot by the Department of Labor and Division of Taxation buildings. Dubbed the John Fitch Way Project, these efforts will be carried out in accordance with the regulations of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Prior to an abundance of natural gas, these materials were “manufactured” at a former plant which was once in operation at this location. While Manufactured Gas Plants were common and met an important need at the time, these plants did leave behind unintended consequences for the local environment.

In order to improve the conditions of this property, PSE&G will be embarking on a soil removal and replacement effort, with plans to excavate approximately 100,000 tons of MGP-impacted soil. Any remaining in-ground infrastructure related to the MGP operations will also be removed. The majority of this work will be performed within a temporary tended enclosure. Any excavated soil, as well as any impacted groundwater and stormwater, will be treated at an off-site facility. From preparing the site to restoration, PSE&G anticipates the work taking approximately 18 months to complete.

Prior to the beginning of this project, PSE&G has set aside time to discuss the upcoming project with the public. Residents have the opportunity to participate in the following upcoming information sessions:

  • Tuesday, March 26th: On March 26th, PSE&G will be hosting a formal information session on Zoom. The webinar will be hosted from 6pm to 8pm. During the session, guests can enjoy a detail presentation regarding the upcoming John Fitch Way project. Following the presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have. Advanced registration is required. In order to sign up, please visit, where you can access all the pertinent details regarding the upcoming conversation.
  • Wednesday, March 27th: On March 27th, PSE&G will be hosting an in-person information session at the Division of Taxation Building, located at 3 John Fitch Way, Trenton, NJ 08611. The in-person session will be held from 6pm to 8pm. At this evening’s session, there will be no formal presentation. Rather, PSE&G subject matter experts will be on hand to discuss the upcoming project. These individuals will be able to review the project history and the focus of upcoming remediation activities, including what you can expect to see and her. They will also be available to discuss any protections PSE&G will have in place to minimize the effects of construction activity.

If you have any questions or would like any help registering for the upcoming seminars, please call PSE&G at (855) 356-2383 or email at for further assistance. Big changes are coming to your community, so be sure to be in the know for what’s coming up the road!
