NOTICE OF ADJUDICATORY HEARING - information for those persons wishing to participate in this proceeding and/or comment on the Initial Petition and Certification Application



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.

Project Work Hours

Work hours are 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday. Saturday work may be permitted at the discretion of the Town of Winchester and Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. Due to weather or other unexpected circumstances, the work hours may be extended.

Parking Restrictions and Pedestrian Detours

Parking restrictions and pedestrian detours may be necessary and will be clearly posted in advance of activities with dates and duration of restrictions.
