National Grid Utility Upgrades

  • In April 2020, National Grid began necessary upgrades to utility infrastructure on Main Street in Reading. The utility upgrades were completed in October 2020.
  • 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.
  • In Spring 2021, roadway surfaces that were impacted by the utility work on Main Street will undergo trench restoration to provide a smoother roadway surface before the final pavement surface is installed.
