Eversource Transmission Maintenance

Eversource’s Transmission Maintenance Department will be replacing select wood pole structures with new, more durable steel structures, as well as installing lightening protection hardware on some existing transmission structures.  The work will take place between the Berkshire Substation in Hinsdale and the Cumberland Substation in Greenfield.

In Ashfield they will be installing lightening protection hardware on structures within Eversource’s existing right of way that crosses Bug Hill Road, Bear Swamp Road, Smith Road, Baptist Corner Road, Bellus Road, Beldingville Road, and Phersick Road.

The work is planned to begin in June with Project completion and restoration of disturbed areas occurring in the Fall of 2020. The hours of construction will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Please note that these work activities will not interrupt electric service to homes or businesses.
