Low Flying Choppers Part of NGrid Line Upgrade Work

by | May 26, 2014

We got this from National Grid the other day.  Don’t be alarmed if you see or hear a low flying or hovering helicopter.  In fact, if you can track them down, this will probably be pretty cool to watch.

National Grid Helicopter Work Begins May 27th

Please be aware that beginning Tuesday, May 27, 2014, National Grid will begin using a helicopter to
complete the wire pulling phase of the construction of the new Z126 transmission line. The first phase of
helicopter work will begin in Auburn at Rockland Road, Rockland Court, Oxford Street, Burnette
Street and Courville Road.

The second phase will be in Millbury near the mall, crossing Route 146, McCracken Road and Martin

The third phase will be back in Auburn at the Route 146 Crossing, Route 290 Crossing, Walsh Road
and Perry Street.

The work will last approximately 3 weeks, with some weekend work required to cross the highway.
