June - December 2018

Maintaining the infrastructure that supports electric lines is one of the many ways Eversource ensures the safe, secure transmission of electricity throughout the region.  As such, Eversource Transmission will be inspecting transmission structures on a right-of-way that passes through the towns of Manchester, Glastonbury, Hebron, Andover, Columbia and Lebanon.  These inspections are scheduled to begin this month (June) and will continue until the end of 2018. Work hours are Monday – Sunday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Contract crews from Osmose will be working for Eversource to inspect existing transmission structures.  The crews will be walking or riding in ATVs within the rights-of-way.  In some instances, they may hand excavate around the base of the structure. The excavated area will be filled in before moving on to the next structure.    

In Glastonbury, this work will take place in the right-of-way off of Shallow Brook Lane, Rt. 83/Manchester Road, Coop Road, and Birch Mountain Road.
