NSTAR's crews were on site today conducting some of the necessary work which will bring the construction at the intersection of School and West Main Streets closer to completion. NSTAR's crews estimate that it will take them 8-10 days to relocate all their wires from the old poles to the new poles.

Sincerely,
John K. Westerling
