The City of Beverly is pleased to announce that in the Summer of 2015 we began the Route 1A Reconstruction Project. For up to the minute scheduling updates and alerts, please visit

Important Information for those Residents and Businesses affected by the Route 1A Reconstruction Project

Upon completion of the project, the newly paved streets will not be permitted to be dug/opened for at least FIVE years. Therefore, if there is any pending underground utility work to be performed it must be completed prior to completion the reconstruction project.

Examples of Underground Utility work are but not limited to:

  • Electric
  • Cable
  • Sewer (chronic issues should be addressed at this time)
  • Water (volume, pressure, and quality issues should be brought to the attention of the Water Department at this time 978.921.6057)
  • Natural Gas: In the event you do not have natural gas service and are interested in changing to natural gas, we would suggest that you contact National Grid (1-800-233-5325) to schedule your service at this time. Please notify the Engineering Department so we can assist you with expediting your request (978.605.2358).
  • Sump Pump: If you have a sump pump it may be possible to connect to the City’s drainage infrastructure. Call the Engineering Department if you need assistance with this matter (978.605.2358).

The Engineering Department is available to assist you with any questions or concerns you have. We will also be updating this important project with information that can be found on this link as it becomes available.

Pre-construction activities have begun on Rt.1A. National Grid Gas has started to replace their old mains and services within the project scope.

In addition, our water department has started the process of updating water services to copper as needed within the City limits. Their first phase of their work was located at the beginning of the job at the Beverly/Salem bridge to School Street. We do not have a specific schedule as of yet when they will continue their efforts.
