Project Update: Cable Removal

Project Update: Cable Removal


We're happy to report that cable removal is more than 50% complete!

For the next two weeks, you can expect to see crew activity at locations along Newport Avenue as contractors remove the pre-existing underground cable adjacent to the North Quincy Cable Project route.

Please note that work hours are 7:00AM to 3:00PM, Monday through Friday.

As always, we ask that drivers and pedestrians remain mindful of lane shifts, posted traffic signage, and the direction of police details stationed around these work zones.

Please know that construction is scheduled to minimize the impact on traffic and everyday life; sections of your 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. 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.

*Please note, due to the complexities of outdoor construction, schedule is subject to change.
