Algonquin Gas Transmission Company is hosting a series of Open House meetings about their proposed Access Northeast Project. The proposed project plans include replacement of existing pipelines and construction of new pipelines in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
The Open House meetings are being held to provide landowners, public officials and other stakeholders with additional information about the project, based on the activities conducted to date.
Algonquin plans to replace a 26-inch-diameter mainline pipeline segment with 42-inch-diameter pipeline located in Putnam and Fairfield Counties. This 4.5 mile-long replacement segment would begin at the Southeast Compressor Station and extend into Danbury. The replacement segment would end at Algonquin’s existing site located east of Clapboard Ridge Road.
Project representatives as well as representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will be available at the Open House in Danbury tonight to respond to questions. The gathering is from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Old Ridgebury Road.
