LODI, N.J. — PSE&G road work that has caused major Lodi road closures since July will take at least another two months to complete, a spokeswoman for the utility told Daily Voice.

The latest closure occurred on busy Union Street the week of Oct. 12. The work has closed different parts of the road, including at James Place and Prospect Street.

The construction is part of PSE&G's Energy Strong program, which calls for the replacement of 250 miles of older cast iron gas lines with new plastic pipes in flood areas, spokeswoman Lindsey Puliti said.

In Lodi eight miles of pipe will be replaced. PSE&G expects to complete the work in December, weather permitting, she said.

"These new pipes will prevent water from entering the mains, increasing the reliability of gas service in locations that sustained water damage during Hurricane Irene or Superstorm Sandy," Puliti told Daily Voice. "Once this work is done, our gas system in these areas will be better protected during future storms," she said.

Police have been directing traffic and advising residents to take alternate routes.
