On behalf of National Grid and the Salem Cable Project Team, we wanted to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for your patience and cooperation throughout the span of this important infrastructure project.

Successful completion of an underground transmission project, like the Salem Cable Project, requires input and assistance from many different parties. Selecting qualified, and conscientious construction contractors is the first step, but without the input and cooperation of community partners and municipal leaders, projects often struggle to stay on schedule and can create their own "headaches" along the way.

From start of construction in 2015, the Salem Cable Project has worked with a number of groups in Salem. From neighborhood associations to the Salem Chamber, the feedback that we gathered throughout the project has guided many of the decisions we've made.

These decisions ranged from formulating the construction sequence to schedule adjustments and we recognize that we couldn't have made them without input from the community. Specifically, we would like to highlight the work of the City's Salem Cable Project Working Group and thank them for their regular guidance.

We understand that the Salem Cable Project was not without hiccups, but we hope that through our work in the community we've demonstrated our willingness to be good community partners by mitigating as many inconveniences as was possible. With the Salem Cable Project now complete, we look forward to continuing to deliver reliable electricity to Salem and North Shore communities for years to come.
