Gas Installation Beginning Downtown

Eversource is expanding the natural gas distribution system in New Canaan in the area of Main Street between East Avenue and Locust Avenue and on Locust Avenue between Main Street and Forest Street.  This work is tentatively set to start the week of May 16, 2021, and will continue through approximately June 18, 2021.

All Eversource employees, contractors and field representatives carry identification which they will share upon request.  The gas installation work is weather-dependent and construction activities are subject to change. Advance traffic warning signs and police detail will be placed to afford a safe commute through or near the work zones. Construction activities will be done during the day and night at the following areas: 

Night Work:
Sunday - Thursday

8 p.m. – 5 a.m.

Main Street (between East Street and Locust Avenue)

Day Work:
Monday – Friday

8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

 Locust Avenue (between Main Street and Forest Street)
