A community meeting is being held tonight in Redding about planned maintenance work by Eversource. The proposal is for work on the transmission line that runs from the Peaceable Street substation to the Archer Lane substation. Information will be presented and questions will be addressed at that time in regard to the proposed work.
Redding will also begin to organize the neighborhoods’ response to the proposal. The community meeting is at 7pm in the Town Hall Meeting Room.
Eversource plans to replace 26 existing structures in the areas of Diamond Hill Road, Umpawaug Road, Windy Hill Road, Quarry Rock Road, Seventy Acres Road, Indian Hill Road, and Peaceable Street. It includes replacement of wooden H poles that blend into scenery with steel monopoles that will be visible above the treeline. Additional trees may be removed and accessways improved so that large machinery can access the right of way.
