Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC (Transco) has received authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct its Leidy Southeast Project including the Skillman Loop in Somerset and Mercer Counties, NJ.  Transco’s tree clearing began at the northern end of the project, at the sheep farm at 421 Route 601 (Block 4001 Lot 10.03), then south traversing Montgomery Twp. and continue into Princeton.   Most of the work is within or adjacent to existing pipeline right-of-way in this leg of the project. Another leg of this same project was constructed in 2009 from this point north into Hillsborough.

Should you have questions or concerns during construction or restoration activities, please call Transco’s Project Land Office at (610) 419-9145 in Bethlehem, Pa. That office is staffed during normal business hours. Should you receive a recorded message, please leave your name and phone number and a Transco Land Representative will return your call promptly. A response to your question/concern can be expected within 24 to 48 hours.
