Andrew J. Lawyer, project manager of Edwards Moving & Rigging, Inc., informed Medfield Town Administrator Michael Sullivan, via e-mail, that a NSTAR transformer is expected to pass through Medfield early Monday morning enroute to Medway.
The e-mail, which was published on Medfield Board of Selectmen chair Osler "Pete" Peterson's blog "Medfield 02052", says the company is "on schedule to move the NSTAR transformer through the town of Medfield very early Monday morning," between 2 and 3 a.m.
Lawyer said in the e-mail he will contact before arriving in town. The transformer wide load transport left Conley Terminal in Boston at 1 a.m. Sunday and was staged south of Dedham at the intersection of Washington Street and Gay Street until Sunday evening, according to an e-mail sent to town officials.
The second leg of the move will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday and is expected to pass through Medfield between 2 and 3 a.m. before arriving at NSTAR's substation in Medway early Monday morning.
The e-mail explained any stop light heads and poles that need to be moved during the transport will be handled by Republic ITS – the same contractor that assisted in a .
Boston Transportation Police, according to the e-mail, will be escorting the transformer along with Massachusetts State Police. Dedham Police assisted with traffic control during the staging that took place Sunday morning.
During Sunday night and Monday morning, Massachusetts State Police will escort the remainder of the trip with assistance from Dedham, Westwood, Medfield, Millis and Medway as it passes through those juridictions.
