National Grid Gas Update - National Grid gas has combined the final phase of the Rt. 1A project to include Kittredge St/Jordan St/Russel St. All of the new main has been installed on Kittredge and Jordan St. There is a small amount of main to be installed on Russel St. Most importantly, nearly all of the new main is installed on Cabot St. Once the remaining main is installed they will begin the service transfers then finish with the main connections. National Grid estimates this final phase will take 5 weeks to complete. 
Once National Grid Gas completes this final phase the only work that remains for them on the entire Rt. 1A project will be the work around the Railroad tracks at Cabot St/Russell St and Cabot St/Colon St locations. They are still waiting on MBTA permits to go underneath the tracks.
