National Grid to begin underground cable replacement


Shampine said the Mirra company is contractually obligated to restore all of the grassy areas and driveways that are disturbed by the installation process. An estimated six road crossings and approximately 14 driveways will be impacted. She said that the plan is to dig only a small trench across the affected area, not to bore under pavement or asphalt.

Shampine is “hopeful the work will be done quickly and we can avoid prolonged inconvenience” and sees the project as “a great step” in preventing further outages in the neighborhood. Customers will be notified in writing if — at any time — the planned work requires an interruption in power.

For more information about the project, Shampine can be reached at 978-725-1208 or at
