National Grid has announced that an $11 million electrical infrastructure improvement project is under way. The project is designed to improve service reliability for the communities of Essex, Hamilton, Gloucester, Manchester by the Sea, Rockport and Wenham, Mass.

The company is upgrading 15 miles of underground cable systems that will add capacity to the distribution system as well as add system redundancy in the event of a power outage. In addition to the installation of new cable, the company will be upgrading existing equipment in its substations in Beverly, Manchester and Gloucester.

National Grid has hired ElecComm, a utility line construction company, to work on the project. The infrastructure upgrades began in September, and National Grid has completed 20% of the project thus far. The project is scheduled for completion in June 2013.
