Uniondale, NY - February 26th, 2015 - PSEG Long Island has begun installing one new dedicated feeder line to serve North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. The new line will connect the Great Neck Substation directly to the hospital. The project is designed to improve reliability, storm harden the area and enable the grid to keep pace with the growing demand for electricity.
“Our mission is to provide our customers with best-in-class reliability, exceptional customer service and storm response,” said John O’Connell, vice president of transmission and distribution, PSEG Long Island. “This project will provide system redundancy to meet the growing capacity demand and serve the hospital electrical power needs.”
The project will cover 1.76 miles starting at the Great Neck Substation. The work being done in the substation will take place within the fence line. The feeder line will travel east underground along Shoreward Drive, Highland Road and Colonial Road to East Shore Road via an existing duct. It will then continue underground in a newly installed conduit system along East Shore Road to Community Drive and onto North Shore University Hospital property near the Emergency Room entrance.
As this work is performed, residents may see crews working in the area on the side of the road. For your safety and the safety of our workers, please respect the work zone protection areas and use caution by driving slowly and giving them the right of way. PSEG Long Island does not anticipate any power outages related to this project.
