Eversource Gas Notice - July 27, 2017

To our customers and neighbors on Sixth Street (Cambridge Street to Charles Street), It is necessary that we upgrade the natural gas main and services on Sixth Street. Weather permitting, Eversource Gas Main Construction will begin construction on Sixth Street on Tuesday August 1st, 2017, work hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please anticipate that the specific areas to be worked will be posted with no parking signs as needed, and Cambridge Police Officers’ will be on site to assist with the pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Proposed work is projected to take approximately 12-15 weeks.

We understand the inconvenience this may cause, and will make necessary efforts to minimize any interruption to your gas services. Depending on the existing conditions at your residence or business our work may involve moving natural gas meters outside, replacing your existing gas service line, and installing curb valves at the street. There may also be other upgrades required to ensure the safe and most efficient operation of the natural gas distribution system.

Upon completion of the construction process, paved or cemented areas, which were disturbed, will be permanently repaired with material similar to what was removed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this construction may cause. Please contact Supervisor of Construction, Marissa Blockus at (203) 722-7951.

Sincerely,
