Project Update: April 22, 2022


On behalf of National Grid’s North Quincy Cable Project, we wanted to check in as we continue to prepare for second phase of construction.

We appreciate your interest in this important underground transmission construction project that when complete, will enhance the reliability of our electricity network and allow us to better serve our customers in Quincy.

As you know, this project will replace the backbone of the electric transmission system in Quincy. More specifically, we’ll be replacing the existing underground electric transmission cables that connect our substation on Field Street with our substation in North Quincy. For more detailed information on the project, construction process, and community resources, we encourage you to explore out dedicated project website. is a one-stop shop where you can find the latest information related to construction schedules, traffic management and other updates.

One of the most useful features of the website is its “Project Updates” page. As construction schedules become available, regular updates will be posted to the site. But, you can also sign up to have these updates sent directly to your email inbox via the “Project Updates” form located on the homepage.

As construction begins, please know that it has been sequenced to minimize the impact on traffic and everyday life; your neighborhood and street will likely only be impacted by the construction for weeks—not years. That said, we understand that construction doesn’t always feel “short-term” when it’s in front of your home or business. That’s why, as work begins in your area, we will continue to work to mitigate inconveniences that come up to the greatest extent feasible. Please let us know about upcoming deliveries, schedules, and events that could be impacted by work.

If you live along the project route, please keep an eye out for our outreach team in your neighborhood. We’ll be there to share the latest project information, answer questions and address concerns.

If you have questions about any of our current or upcoming work, please feel free to contact a member of our project outreach team by phone or email. We welcome your feedback as we work in your community.

Thank you for following our project updates!
