Gloucester City NJ June 10, 2015 (CNBNews.net)— For the past several months PSE&G along with Verizon have been adding heavy duty dark black wires to the old utility poles in the Riverview Heights section of Gloucester City. Today, the extra weight on those poles have caused one to break in half on Lane Avenue near the corner of Thompson Ave. Several others (photo above) are now leaning to one side. The wires come in from South Broadway and extend over Kohler Street to Lane Avenue and east onto Thompson Avenue out to the high tension wires by Gloucester City High School.
Presently traffic is being detoured from this area. So far electrical services has not been affected.
Police and firefighters are on the scene.
