The GSRP was fully placed in service on November 20, 2013. The Project was designed to improve transmission system reliability, ease transmission bottlenecks in the greater Springfield and north central Connecticut areas, and meet more stringent federal and regional reliability standards.

The Project began in late 2010 to upgrade 39 miles of transmission lines on an existing right-of-way between Ludlow, Massachusetts, and Bloomfield, Connecticut.

With over 600 new structures and 13 new or rebuilt substations and switching stations, major construction on the Project was finished both on time and under budget, despite challenging weather events that included Superstorm Sandy and the blizzard of 2013.

The Greater Springfield Reliability Project is one of the major transmission projects that are part of the New England East-West Solution (NEEWS).
