Dear Resident/Business Owner:

This is an important notice informing you National Grid will be working in your neighborhood on Bacon St from Lagrange St to Mystic Valley Pkwy; Lagrange St from Bacon St to Norwood St; Norwood St from Church St to Central St; Cottage Ave from Bacon St to Norwood St; Central St from Bacon St to Rangeley Rd; Harrington Rd from Bacon St to the dead end; and Everett Ave from Bacon St to Stratford Rd in order to replace and/or relocate the gas main.

The first phase of the project will begin on or about March 3rd,2022, on Bacon St from Lagrange St to Mystic Valley Pkwy, and will continue for approximately 1 month. Work will then take place on the remaining streets after this phase, weather permitting, and will continue for approximately 2 months. Work will generally take place from 7:00am – 4:00pm, Monday – Friday. National Grid customers, within the scope of the project, will have their gas services replaced and transferred to the new gas main in the street. Each gas service transfer will be scheduled in advance with the customer and they can expect a short interruption of gas service on the day of the work on the service. The customer will need to allow our contractor and company technicians access to the property in order to restore the gas service. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but this project is part of our commitment to provide continuous improvements and keep the natural gas delivery system safe and reliable.

Please note that Covid-19 guidelines will be followed at all times.

  • Proper PPE is required at all times.
  • PPE includes but is not limited to hard hat, safety glasses, gloves, safety toe boots, reflective vest, face shield or face covering.
  • PPE shall be cleaned before and after use.
  • Each job site shall have a laminated copy of the COVID-19 Work Safety Plan.
  • Hand shaking and other physical contact is prohibited.
  • As part of daily health screening, customers will be asked about current health status before employees enter a property.
  • All employees and visitors must implement social distancing by maintaining a minimum distance of 6 feet from other individuals wherever possible.
  • Hand washing stations will be present at all times.

National Grid and/or a qualified contractor (RJ Devereaux Corp) will perform the work. A police detail will be provided. The road will be open to the public and parking may be limited. Expect delays and please use an alternate route if possible. A construction foreman with appropriate identification will be on site to address your parking needs throughout the duration of the project.

There may be a lag between temporary and permanent restoration of the street and sidewalk, depending on weather and ground conditions. All restoration details have been coordinated through the Winchester DPW. Please note; on the streets on this project off of Bacon St, curb to curb pavement restoration will take place after work is complete.

If you have any questions about the project, please call Matt Carmody, Construction Supervisor, at 781-790-6062. For general inquiries, National Grid Customer Service can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-233-5325.


If you do not have a gas service to your home/business or are not currently using natural gas for heating, this is the easiest time to make the switch to clean, reliable natural gas. Please be aware that if your street is repaved, it will be some years before National Grid has permission to reopen the street and/or sidewalk. For more details about our many conversion incentives, please call 1-877-696-4743.
