    PORTSMOUTH–Eversource has informed the City that on Monday, May 16, 2022, they are starting a construction project that will impact High, Ladd and Market streets. The affected areas and work phasing are shown in the image below. Although this is not a City project, City staff is involved to facilitate communications with all affected residents and businesses. 
    The project involves installing subsurface conduit to connect to transformers that are housed in the Hanover Street Garage to provide enhanced electrical power to that area of downtown.
    The initial phases will be on Market Street which will impact the availability of parking to allow continuous one lane traffic around the work zones. It is expected that work on Market Street will be complete before Memorial Day weekend with roadway patching and temporary sidewalks for the summer. Final repairs to this area will occur in the fall. After Memorial Day, the work will shift to Ladd Street and will limit traffic on High and Ladd streets between Congress and Market Street. Flaggers will be on-site throughout all phases of the work to aid vehicle and pedestrian travel and to assure access to all business. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
