UPPER FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) - The state’s utility board is weighing a company’s proposal for a 28-mile long natural gas pipeline that would run across the center of the state.

The Times of Trenton reports (http://bit.ly/1GMbOf1 ) Wednesday a spokesman for the Board of Public Utilities says a decision on whether to hold a hearing could come in a month.

The proposed $130 million pipeline would begin in Burlington County, run through Monmouth County and end in Ocean County.

New Jersey Natural Gas hopes to break ground in the fall and to begin operating in early 2016.

The company serves about a half a million residents in the state and is part of a coalition making up the PennEast Pipeline Co. that has proposed a 110-mile long pipeline running through eastern Pennsylvania and central New Jersey.
