Redding Friends, I received notice via email from Eversource yesterday with the news that transmission maintenance work is scheduled to begin in August on the transmission line running from Peaceable to Diamond Hill Road (Archer Street Substation).
Eversource plans to replace 26 existing structures in the areas of Diamond Hill Rd, Umpawaug Rd, Windy Hill Rd., Quarry Rock Rd., Seventy Acres Rd., Indian Hill Rd., and Peaceable St.
If you live along the transmission lines running across Redding from Peaceable Street to the Archers Lane substation please contact me at 203-938-2002 or firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Transmission Maintenance. I would like to schedule a community meeting ASAP to discuss potential impacts to properties along the right of way.
These include the replacement of wooden H poles that blend into our 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. I have asked Eversource a for detailed description of the work plan immediately.
