National Grid Construction Areas


National Grid has two active construction areas in Brookline for which they have asked the Board of Selectmen for Noise ByLaw Waivers. A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5th at approximately 8:45pm during the Selectmen's meeting.

Public Hearing

Date: Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Time: Approximately 8:45pm

Location: Selectmen's Hearing Room, 6th Floor, Brookline Town Hall, 333 Washington Street

Public comment will be accepted during this hearing. Comment may also be submitted in writing, advance of the hearing, to sorsini@brooklinema.gov.



"National Grid would like to request two noise variance extensions due to some obstacles we have run into. One big obstacle was the Comm Ave. bridge project that set us back 3 weeks! The Project on Beacon St is moving along but with all the underground obstructions we have had, slowed things down to the point that we need to take out a section of the existing gas main in order to connect the new main. The extension we are requesting  would carry us into November 15, 2017."
