Residents may notice an increased presence at the National Grid property located at its former MGP (Manufactured Gas Plant) site at Intersection Street, bordered by Second Street and Franklin Avenue. This is an active site as National Grid does have an underground station and monitoring stations there but the overall presence has been less for a few years. The presence will consist of pipe storage as well as some welding activities - mainly daytime work with some night work involved. Work will be kept to the far corner of the property closest to Franklin Avenue and away from the nearby apartment buildings. Mobilization to this location will begin in the next week or two. National Grid will maintain some type of presence there for a few years. For more information, visit the Hempstead National Grid website.
