Eversource will be replacing existing transmission structures in Newtown and Monroe.  The utility says this is being done as part of routine efforts to deliver reliable energy through maintenance efforts.  The line structure replacement project includes replacing the existing, aged and damaged wood transmission structures with new steel ones.  They will also install new communication and grounding wire on top of the existing structures.  That is meant to enable communication between Eversource substations.  All of the work will take place within the existing right of way between the Sandy Hook Substation and the Stevenson Substation.  Preliminary work will be done next month and in December, structure replacement is slated for January, and line installation will be done in January and February.  The project should be complete by Spring.
