[ARCHIVED] Eversource to send engineering crews to assess noise, vibration concerns near John Lane

An Eversource lineworker fixes transmission lines

Due to an increase in resident calls concerned about noise and their homes vibrating, Eversource has pulled off their project on John Lane. Officials plan to send an engineering crew to the area to assess the range and scope of the noise and vibrations before continuing any work. 

Eversource transmission work began this summer in Holyoke, Chicopee, and South Hadley that includes replacement of 10 lattice structures with new steel structures and installation of a new optical grounding wire (OPGW) at the top of all structures within the right-of-way. 

The OPGW will be installed between Mt. Tom Substation in Holyoke and the Fairmont Substation in Chicopee. There is one structure being replaced in Holyoke, seven in South Hadley, and two in Chicopee. Of note, the work will involve crossing the CT River from Holyoke into South Hadley as well as crossing over Route 202 in South Hadley.    

If residents have concerns, the Eversource Projects Hotline number is 800-793-2202. Folks can leave a message with their name, number and address. The voicemail is checked every few hours. Residents can also email
