Con Edison has started a $4 million pilot program in Middle Village that involves moving overhead power lines below ground — as a means to prevent future outages.

The energy company announced the program during a Community Board 5 meeting Tuesday and said that it had started work on the project called the “Juniper Valley Undergrounding Pilot.”

Workers are in the process of moving overhead wires below ground along sections of Juniper Valley Road and 77th Street in a residential area in Middle Village.
