    New London gas line installation to begin Monday on Pequot Avenue

    New London — Eversource will install new gas main lines on Pequot Avenue from Jerome Road to Rockbourne Lane starting Monday.

    Construction activities will occur Monday through Friday and occasionally on Saturdays, from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., according to a statement from the city. 

    Work will be weather-dependent and construction activities are subject to change.

    Installation will include moving natural gas meters outside, replacing existing gas service lines and installing curb valves on the street, among other possible upgrades.

    There will be temporary interruptions to the natural gas service, officials said. Residents will be contacted before any interruption. Eversource representatives after the work is completed will turn residents' natural gas meters back on, relight natural gas appliances and perform a safety check.

    Subsequent phases will cover Hillside Avenue, Jerome Road, Guthrie Place, Shirley Lane, West Guthrie Place, Worthington Road, Rockbourne Lane, Lower Boulevard from Hillside to Pequot, Ocean Avenue by Shirley Lane, and Parkway South.
