New phase of Sagamore gas line construction to begin
The Western Segment will begin construction this month through Sandwich, MA as part of a multi-year, three segment project that will bring a total of 13.1 miles of new gas main to the Cape.
Currently, National Grid provides natural gas service to approximately 100,000 businesses and residences on Cape Cod. The continued work on the Sagamore Line will bring Cape Cod residents and businesses many short and long-term benefits. It’s part of our ongoing efforts to ensure we can meet customer demand for gas in the region going forward (but it should be noted that this project is not related to, and has no impact on, the current Cape Cod gas moratorium on new customer connections in the communities of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Chatham, Orleans, Eastham, and parts of Barnstable and Yarmouth).
Growing, upgrading and maintaining gas pipeline infrastructure is an integral part of National Grid’s commitment to meeting New England’s energy needs, and is a key component of our Connect21 vision to shape a safe, reliable and efficient system. The Sagamore gas line is an important reliability project to help us better meet the energy needs of our Cape residents.
