The purpose of these power interruptions is to de-energize utility lines and allow Commonwealth Utilities Corp. and its contractor to safely replace wood poles with concrete poles. The project tasks are part of CUC’s ongoing Hazard Mitigation Project that focuses on strengthening and hardening CUC’s power distribution system through the replacement of 787 wooden poles with concrete poles. Of the 787 wooden poles to be replaced, 696 pole replacements have been made by CUC and its contractor.
Because of the scale of work that will be performed, CUC asks travelers to take alternate routes or to exercise caution when driving through the working area.
