FEBRUARY 1, 2018 - CONSTRUCTION NOTICE
MYSTIC TO WOBURN LINE PROJECT
From February of 2018 through March of 2018, Bond Brothers Construction will be working for Eversource between Fenwick Road and the Wedgemere MBTA Station on Bacon Street.
Construction activity in this area will include the construction of a temporary dam within the Aberjona River at a height of about 12 feet and crews working within the Aberjona River.
In addition to work within the Aberjona River, crews will be performing land survey work, installing an underground concrete vault and digging a trench to contain a new transmission line. The trench and manhole work will take place in the area between the Aberjona River and the Wedgemere MBTA Station. Steel plates will be used to secure the vault and trench locations at the end of each workday.
Restoration and Site Improvement Work
When complete, crews will restore areas that were disturbed by the work and remove invasive species between Fenwick Road and Bacon Street, with a goal to improve overall conditions within the riparian zone of the Aberjona River.
We thank you in advance for your understanding during this construction period.
