SADDLE BROOK, N.J. — Three miles or so of gas lines will be replaced in Saddle Brook in more than 20 different areas to prepare the township for storms.

The construction, begun last week, will continue through January 2016, PSE&G spokeswoman Lindsey Puliti said. It's part of PSE&G's Energy Strong program, which will replace 250 miles of old gas mains in New Jersey.

"These new pipes will prevent water from entering the mains, increasing the reliability of gas service in locations that sustained water damage during Hurricane Irene or Superstorm Sandy," Puliti told Daily Voice.

The Saddle Brook improvements began at Platt Avenue and Welcome Road.

The work is being done from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The roads generally won't have to be closed, Mayor Bob White said.

The affected streets include:

Saddle River Road between Platt Avenue and Market Street

Platt Avenue between Glen Road and Saddle River Road

Chelsea Drive between Platt Avenue and Chelsea Court
