The Rhode Island and Massachusetts portions of the project extend approximately 38 miles through National Grid’s service areas. The siting decisions in those states are expected later this year, with construction of the project slated to begin shortly thereafter.
The project is also expected to bring critically-needed economic benefits to all three southern New England states by creating hundreds of new local jobs and generating significant new property tax revenue to towns along the project route.
The project is scheduled to be in-service by late 2015. CL&P has notified municipalities and nearby residents along the project route of the CSC decision and expected timeframe for construction. The company will continue to work closely with these customers and neighbors to keep them informed of additional project milestones.
