This is an important notice informing you National Grid will be performing replacement work of our gas mains and gas services in your neighborhood at 1 to 53 Canal ST.; 5 to 17 Pond ST., Salem, MA. Our work has a tentative start time during the week of November 24, 2014 with an approximate end date of January 20, 2015. Additionally, general posting in the area will provide the specific dates following our permitting process. The work will occur between the normal working hours of 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. National Grid customers will have a scheduled time period for the transfer of services to the new main, where there will be a short interruption of gas service. For this process to be completed, our technicians will need access to the existing gas service and meter. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but this project is part of our commitment to provide continuous improvements and keep the natural gas delivery system safe and reliable.

• National Grid and/or a qualified contractor will perform the work. A police detail is provided, if necessary. The road will be open to the public and parking may be limited. A construction foreman with appropriate identification will be on site to address your parking needs throughout the duration of the construction.

• Meters will need to be relocated to the outside of the home or business.

• There may be a lag between temporary and permanent restoration of the street and sidewalk, depending on weather and ground conditions.
