The proposed Interstate Reliability Project is designed to improve the reliability of the transmission system serving eastern Connecticut and the southern New England region. The project route begins in Lebanon and continues through Columbia, Coventry, Mansfield, Chaplin, Hampton, Brooklyn, Pomfret, Killingly, Putnam and Thompson, and then extends through National Grid's service areas in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The November open house is the second of two regional events held by CL&P to update residents on the project and receive their meaningful feedback. The first open house was held in Danielson on August 23, 2011. At the open houses, members of the CL&P project team are on hand to provide information and answer residents’ questions about the project.
