BRISTOL -- Eversource Gas is scheduled to start installation of a gas line on Tuesday, Jan. 19, in the Forestville neighborhood that includes Fair Street, Grove Avenue, Buckley Avenue, Garden Street, Vernon Street and Pleasant Avenue.

“The purpose of the work is to upgrade the existing gas line,” said Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.

The hours of construction will be 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and occasionally on Saturdays. The work is weather dependent and construction activities are subject to change.

“While there may be minor traffic delays during construction, one lane of traffic will remain open for mail delivery, emergency vehicles, buses, and local traffic at all times,” said Councilwoman Brittany Barney.
