New Castle Supervisor
Very happy to report that Con Ed gas main replacement project is finally complete! Con Ed restoration crews will be back next week – during the day – to remove the last remaining plates and back fill the holes. Con Ed overhead will be in town in the coming months to work on the relocation of some 16 utility poles. We need to move these poles as part of the street scape project (wider sidewalks will leave existing poles in the middle of our new sidewalks).
This Monday we resumed our night construction schedule – 8 pm to 5 am. We expect all work crews to be engaged in night work until at least March. Our crews have been essentially idle for 2 weeks. Although Con Ed had very little work to complete, they were asked to stop work between Christmas & New Years. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get Con Ed back until Monday. Without Con Ed, our contractor couldn’t do their work since our work was near a gas line.
Our work will now be concentrated on the corner of lower King Street and Greeley. Specifically the removal of the existing 4 foot diameter man hole at that corner and the installation of a new 7 foot diameter manhole that will be the anchor of the new sanitary sewer system we are installing. They will only be shutting down lower King and North Greeley. They have kept – and will continue to keep – 2 way traffic from King to South Greeley all night. They will not be closing lower King until 9 pm. Click here for weekly updates & two weeks forecast.
