WAKEFIELD — National Grid continues work this week at sites on Albion Street (between Broadway and the Stoneham line) and Montrose Avenue (between Whittier Road and Wakefield Junction Substation Driveway). These crews are working to install the final segments of duct bank on these streets. Allowable work hours at these sites remain 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday as crews work to complete this work as efficiently as possible.

On Albion Street, a one-way alternating traffic pattern and a detour will be in effect at northern entrance to W. Park Drive.

The Montrose Avenue work calls for detours at Salem Street-Montrose Avenue and Water Street-Montrose Avenue intersections.

Drivers and those on foot are advised to exercise caution when approaching these active work areas to minimize risks to personal safety and to avoid any interference with construction.

As construction continues, the Wakefield Police Department has the option to modify the traffic management plans based on their judgment and expertise, including street closures and traffic detours to ensure the safety of the general public. As always, police details will be present at all work sites to facilitate vehicle and pedestrian traffic management.

National Grid has enacted additional policies and guidelines for field and office personnel that are in line with the Commonwealth’s Guidelines and Procedures for construction as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines. For more information about National Grid’s response to COVID-19, visit: ngrid.com/covid-19.

Under the direction of National Grid, the Woburn-to-Wakefield Line Project is a new underground electric transmission line being built in Wakefield, Stoneham, Winchester, and Woburn. The line addresses potential overloads on existing transmission lines first identified in ISO-NE’s 2008 Needs Assessment, reevaluated in 2013/2014, and confirmed in ISO-NE’s 2015 Needs Assessment.

Once all project construction is complete, the project route will be repaved, curb-to-curb, at National Grid’s expense. This includes sections of Albion Street, Broadway Street, North Avenue, Main Street, Salem Street, and Montrose Avenue as well as street crossings at Bennett Street, Richardson Street, and Water Street.
