PSEG Long Island will install two new underground cables that will provide additional capacity to nearby blocks to improve reliability during times of peak electrical consumption. One underground cable will start from an overhead pole near the corner of North Avenue and Roxbury Road and travel underneath the LIRR tracks to a new manhole located near the corner of South Avenue and Roxbury Road. A second underground cable will travel between overhead poles near Nassau Boulevard and just west of Roxbury Road.

 Two replacement poles will be installed at the following locations:

  • One 45-foot pole will replace a 40-foot pole on the north side of the LIRR tracks near the intersection of North Avenue and Roxbury Road 
  • One 35-foot pole will replace a 30-foot pole on the south side of the LIRR tracks near South Avenue, just north of a parking lot between Euston Road and Nassau Boulevard

Each pole will connect to the existing overhead distribution infrastructure via an overhead wire. The project is expected to start at the end of February.
