Pilgrim Feeder

Project Specifics

PSEG Long Island will install a new underground distribution feeder line to address the load growth need in your area. Along the project route, there will be several temporary drill pits to allow for the installation of the underground cable. This will allow us to tie the new feeder into existing overhead facilities.

These upgrades will ensure that you and your neighbors receive safe, reliable electric power for years to come.

Project Routes

  • Underground work will occur in the LIPA right-of-way south of New Highway and run parallel to Sunken Meadow State Parkway and continue in the LIPA right-of-way south of Delaware Avenue
  • Commack Road south of Delaware Avenue and continue past Northern State Parkway to the intersection of Vanderbilt Parkway.
