Eversource will begin efforts in Southington to support a reliability project that will begin in March and continue through the summer months. The project requires Eversource to relocate its poles, beginning on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike from South End Road to Meriden Avenue. The project will include all side streets. The work will also be taking place on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike to Savage Street.
In some cases, a temporary disconnection of electric service may be necessary. Those affected will be contacted by Eversource to schedule an appointment.
Eversource crews operating heavy construction vehicles and bucket trucks will work Monday through Friday, on a daylight schedule that minimizes impact on local businesses.
Impact to traffic is expected to be minimal; however, isolated traffic delays may occur. Eversource will ensure travel access to residences and businesses, as well as priority passage of emergency vehicles through construction areas with the assistance of local law enforcement.
The construction schedule may be subject to change due to weather conditions and other unexpected circumstances.
