After starting the planning process in 2017 this project is now ready to begin construction. Farrar Associates Construction Management successfully completed the pre-construction planning phase and is the Construction Manager / General Contractor for the construction of this extensive underground electrical project.

The Scenic Aquidneck Coalition has announced a project to bury utility lines along Third Beach Road and Indian Avenue in Middletown, RI. The Coalition is made up of Aquidneck Land Trust, The Preservation Society of Newport County, and PreserveRI.

Scenic Third Beach Project Middletown RI

The Scenic Third Beach Project will bury utilities underground along Third Beach Road and Indian Avenue in Middletown, Rhode Island. Paradise Valley is an extraordinary place rich in history, beauty and wildlife, and the overhead power lines are obtrusive and detract from its overall scenic appeal. Burying the power lines – 77 poles along a 1.2 mile stretch – will not only enhance scenic views and restore the historic landscape but will also promote coastal resiliency for the overall benefit of the community.
