Description of Eversource Infrastructure Replacement Activities set to begin in August 2017
Replace 13 existing single circuit, wood, H-frame structures with 13 new direct-embed, single circuit, weathering steel, H-frame structures that are slightly higher than the existing structures in Newington, New Britain and Berlin. The replacement poles will be installed within 15 feet of existing structures. Structure replacement will not require tree clearing but minor tree trimming and/or vegetation removal may occur within the designated utility corridor. Work is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
