Project Update

Eversource

Eversource is still awaiting the availability of transformers. Due to ongoing supply chain challenges, Eversource has released a handout, linked below:

Supply Chain Challenges and Eversource’s Adapted Purchasing Strategy

Eversource is onsite now working on its overhead utility line transfer work and is 60-70 percent complete. As long as the utility companies respond and are onsite in a timely and sequential order, the goal is still that by the end of September, all overhead transfers will be complete and the old utility poles can be removed once the new underground infrastructure is operational.

A Public Tree Hearing is scheduled for July 1st by Hopkinton’s Tree Warden to consider the removal of a maple tree to allow Eversource to install new overhead utility lines near 7 East Main Street.

Traffic Poles and Peeling Paint

The town and MassDOT are discussing the repair-in-place process that MassDOT has accepted to repair the chipping poles. They would like to begin the work, but the town has questions about containment and would like MassDOT to ensure that all debris and particles are contained if the poles are to be stripped and painted on-site. The tentative schedule for the stripping and repainting of the traffic poles by Polar Vortex is from June 24th through October 1st. Locations for the repairs are:

  • Main Street & Hayden Rowe Street
  • Main Street & Church Street
  • Main Street & Grove Street
  • Main Street & Fire Station
  • Main Street & Pleasant Street
  • Main Street & Commonwealth Street
  • Main Street & Wood Street

A.F. Amorello (MassDOT’s Contractor)

A.F. Amorello is targeting to be onsite after the 4th of July. They prefer to wait until school is out (the last day of school is June 18) to mobilize and start work again. They are planning to begin work on the south side of the project. Work will include brickwork, sidewalk work, curb work, landscaping, and underground utility connections from the property lines to building foundations and into buildings as required. The utility companies will continue to work on the north side.

Detours to allow lane closures will most likely be required.


Weekly Construction Advisories will resume when there are weekly updates on the project.
