JCP&L: Underground Network Work Continues
Underground transformer repairs/replacements underway.
Jersey Central Power and Light gained a lot of attention–much of it perhaps unwanted–when Tropical Storm Irene barreled through our region, causing its Ridgedale Avenue substation to become submerged in floodwater. That, in addition to a number of underground transformer issues over the last several years, including events outside of Walgreen's on South Street and at the corner of South and James, when a manhole cover exploded into the sky, forcing one passerby to seek medical attention for burns. JCP&L also has connected to the underground explosion that closed the Morristown & Morris Township Library for many months, although no conclusive cause of that explosion has yet to be made.
So, JCP&L is letting people know that, yes, they are continuing work on improving the underground transformer system in Morristown. Earlier this week, for example, crews were out on the Green installing a new transformer for the network.
