Final Pipe Staging Activity for Cross Street 

This notice is to update you regarding the ongoing work on Cross Street to install pipes underneath the Aberjona River. Crews completed the installation of two large diameter segments of pipe. This past Wednesday (8/30/23), crews completed the installation of smaller diameter interior pipes (1/2). Due to conditions in the field, the final installation of smaller diameter interior pipes (2/2) will be completed on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

On Tuesday, September 5, Eversource crews will be transporting the final set of pipes onto Cross Street and installing these pipes under the Aberjona River via “pipe pullback” during daytime work hours. Once pipe pullback begins, it must continue until completion.

If you live on Cross Street and plan to leave your property throughout the day on Tuesday (Sept. 5) during work hours, please relocate your vehicle to Forest St., Marion St., or Washington St. on Monday night (Sept. 4).

Expect road closures on Tuesday, September 5, during work hours (5:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

On September 5, during the early morning, crews will transport pipe from Davidson Park to Cross Street between Forest St. and Washington St. 

During this activity, Cross Street will be CLOSED from Washington St. to Holton St. Police detail officers will maintain local access when possible.
