Glenwood Substation Project
The Glenwood Landing area is currently served by the Glenwood Substation. In order to maintain a resilient and reliable electric infrastructure, PSEG Long Island will need to upgrade and remove facilities in the substation.
PSEG Long Island will de-construct a brick building façade on the east side of Shore Road at the Glenwood Substation, just south of Glenwood Road in Glenwood Landing. The brick building façade must be removed to ensure a safe public and work area before any safety hazards may arise.
Work will begin November 2021. Crews will work daily, Monday through Saturday from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Frequently Asked Questions
Please see below for frequently asked questions.
- Will the project include tree trimming?
Trees growing near power lines significantly increase the chance of power outages and pose safety risks. As we expand and improve our electric circuits, we will trim trees, where necessary, following our utility best practice model (ANSI A300 standards as well as the Best Management Practices Tree Pruning publication): 8 feet to each side; 12 feet above; and 10 feet below the line.
- Will there be any power outages?
PSEG Long Island does not anticipate any planned power outages associated with this project. If the need for a planned outage arises, we will notify customers in advance.
- Will there be any traffic interruptions?
There may be traffic and parking disruptions while the work is performed along the project route. To ensure traffic moves safely, PSEG Long Island will provide cones, flaggers and signage at the work sites, as needed.

A brief note on COVID-19
PSEG Long Island is deeply committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees and our communities. We ask that customers remain in their homes while crews are working nearby. If customers must speak with our crews, we ask that they practice responsible “social distancing” and remain at least 6 feet away to ensure the health of everyone involved. The contractor for this project has provided PSEG Long Island with its safety plan, which meets current regulatory requirements with respect to COVID-19, including social distancing measures.
We are leveraging the guidance of the CDC and state and local authorities in the areas we operate. At PSEG Long Island, we know that our customers rely on us to power their lives and businesses. We are doing our part in fulfilling this commitment. For more information, please visit http://www.psegliny.com/covid19
As always, customer and employee safety is our primary concern. Please be cautious when travelling near our construction work zones.
