Dear Resident/Business Owner:
This is an important notice informing you National Grid will be working in your neighborhood on Winthrop St from Mystic Valley Parkway to High St to replace and/or relocate the gas main. The work will begin on or about October 6th, 2014 and will continue for approximately six weeks. Work will generally take place from 7am – 4pm, Monday – Saturday. National Grid would like to perform this work under our Proactive Main Replacement Program, which targets potential leak prone pipe by many factors including material and age of the facilities. National Grid customers, within the scope of the project, will have their gas services replaced and transferred to the new gas main in the street. Each gas service transfer will be scheduled in advance with the customer and they can expect a short interruption of gas service on the day of the work on the service. The customer will need to allow our contractor and company technicians access to the property in order to restore the gas service. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but this project is part of our commitment to provide continuous improvements and keep the natural gas delivery system safe and reliable.
– National Grid and/or a qualified contractor (RJ Devereaux Corp) will perform the work. A police detail will be provided. The road will be open to the public and parking may be limited. A construction foreman with appropriate identification will be on site to address your parking needs throughout the duration of the project.
– Meters may need to be relocated to the outside of the home or business.
– There may be a lag between temporary and permanent restoration of the street and sidewalk, depending on weather and ground conditions. All restoration details have been coordinated through the Medford DPW.
– Please be aware that the relighting of all appliances will only be performed by National Grid personnel, not a contractor. Relights will be coordinated by National Grid in conjunction with the contractor performing the work.
If you have any questions about the project, please call Chris English, Construction Supervisor at 617-828-1838, or Dan Cameron, Coordinator, Community Investment NE, at 781-338-5367. For general inquiries, National Grid Customer Service can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-233-5325.
NOT A NATIONAL GRID NATURAL GAS CUSTOMER?
If you do not have a gas service to your home/business or are not currently using natural gas for heating, this is the easiest time to make the switch to clean, reliable natural gas. Please be aware that if your street is repaved it will be some years before National Grid has permission to reopen the street and/or sidewalk. For more details about our many conversion incentives please call 1-877-696-4743.
