Greggs Substation to Jackman Substation (F162 / A164) Simultaneous Line Rebuild Project

Why Are We Doing This Project?

Recent inspections and engineering analysis of the F162 and A164 transmission lines revealed that many of the structures are in poor condition due to their age, woodpecker damage, insect damage and pole rot.

A total of 229 wooden H-frame and monopole structures are being replaced with weathering steel H-frame and monopole structures one for one. In addition to structure replacements, both lines will receive fiber optic cable known as Optical Ground Wire (OPGW). Completing the work on these co-located lines simultaneously allows us to minimize the impact on our neighbors and the environment, and capitalize on economy of scale.

Improvements are part of our ongoing investments to deliver reliable energy to our customers and communities.

Where Is The Work Being Done?

This work is taking place within our existing right-of-way (power line corridor). The F162 Line and A164 Line are 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission lines that are 20.58 miles long.

  • Goffstown - South Mast Road, Wallace Road, Worthley Hill Road, Highland Avenue, Ashlar Drive, Mountain Road, Bog Road, Bell Road, New Boston Road, North Mast Road

Construction Updates

See our construction fact sheet for more information about activities occurring in your neighborhood.

Community Outreach

We are committed to engaging municipal officials, residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders about upcoming project activities through municipal briefings, mailings, site meetings, virtual meetings and door-to-door outreach.

We utilize a variety of outreach methods to ensure that all customers and property owners along our transmission lines receive adequate and timely information about our projects. For this project, we will be sending periodic updates as letters mailed directly to all stakeholders, as well as a combination of the following additional methods:

  • Door-to-door outreach
  • Site visits (upon request)
  • Virtual meetings (upon request)
  • Signage placed strategically near construction areas or in residential areas
  • Regular field presence to ensure the safety of our customers, nearby property owners, and our construction crews
  • Read the Project Introduction Letter

Commitment to Safety

We take every safety precaution while working in local communities, and all people working on the construction project carry identification. The project work will not interrupt electric service to homes or businesses.

All Eversource personnel follow applicable health and safety guidelines.
