Nov. 30, 2021 - National Grid announced today that they would be delaying the completion of their sea2shore cable reburying project until next spring when they hope to have more favorable sea conditions.

The next step, the splicing of the new cable segment to the existing cable, is expected to take at least five consecutive days, “which has been difficult to come by at this time of year,” according to Michael Masseur of RDW Group, Inc, a public relations firm for National Grid.
