National Grid Utility Upgrades

  • In April 2020, National Grid began necessary upgrades to utility infrastructure on Main Street in Reading.
  • While the utility upgrades are not part of MassDOT's Route 28 Resurfacing and Road Diet Pilot project, National Grid and MassDOT are working closely to coordinate the two projects.
  • Utility work is expected to be completed in late July 2020.
  • For more information about the National Grid utility upgrades, please view the project info sheet below under Additional Resources.
