As part of our everyday effort to deliver reliable energy to our customers and communities, Eversource and our approved contractors will be conducting various activities associated with transmission line maintenance in Windsor Locks throughout the remainder of this year. Work is expected to take place between the Windsor Locks Substation located on South Street, to the East Windsor town border near Interstate 95. Maintaining infrastructure is one of the many ways Eversource supports the safe and secure transmission of electricity throughout the region.

In addition to vegetation maintenance activities recently communicated to you, the scope of upcoming work will include inspections of existing transmission structures both by foot and utilizing drone patrols, as well as replacement of some existing wood structures with new weathered steel structures. Please note that these work activities will not interrupt electric service to homes or businesses.

For larger undertakings including structure replacement projects, we will follow-up with more detailed project schedules and locations, and also ensure that nearby property owners are being provided with a 1-800 number, an email address, and that our project team performs door-to-door outreach ahead of construction. General work hours will be Monday through Sunday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

As part of our ongoing efforts, we may also be speaking with property owners in your community about topics such as securing off-right-of-way access, and if anyone calls with questions about any Eversource transmission work to please let us know and we will follow up promptly.
