City of Hoboken Construction Update

PSE&G Tree Pruning:
PSE&G will be trimming trees on Clinton Street, 8th Street, Willow Avenue, 12th Street, 7th Street, Park Street, and 9th Street from 8 AM - 4 PM, Tuesday 11/12/19 through Friday 11/15/19. PSE&G has provided informational door-hangers to notify residents next to affected trees. The tree trimming does not include the removal of any trees; only pruning. This work is required every 4 years by the NJ Board of Public Utilities because keeping power lines clear of vegetation is crucial to the safety and reliability of electric service.
