HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) - Hoboken is getting new gas lines as part of PSE&G;’s Energy Strong program to help shield the city from storm damage.

Work will begin later this month to upgrade 60 percent of the city’s gas lines in flood prone areas with high pressure pipes that prevent water from entering the mains.

The utility will also combine Hoboken’s three electrical substations into two and raise them from flooding.

Hoboken also plans to repave 50 blocks of roadways later this year.

The city sustained flooding from the Hudson River during Superstorm Sandy.
