Residents Invited to Community Workshop for PSE&G Madison Street Substation Resiliency & Façade Improvement ProjectTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, February 15th, 2017
The City of Hoboken and PSE&G will hold a community workshop regarding improvements to the Madison Street electrical substation. The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 23 at 7:00pm at the Jubilee Center, 601 Jackson Street.
PSE&G is proposing to make improvements to harden their infrastructure in Hoboken to protect it from power outages caused by flooding. The project involves consolidating and combining the Marshall Street Substation into a single expanded Madison Street Substation, decommissioning the existing Marshall Street Substation, and raising the elevation of the expanded Madison Street Substation.
PSE&G has also agreed to work with the City to create a design that integrates with the urban fabric of the city. The station is currently surrounded by a chain-link fence. PSE&G has retained an architect and will be gathering community input to develop the façade design.
