Project Management

Current Status of Project


  • 03.12.2019: Staff began compiling the materials necessary for the project.  Work on the block is scheduled to begin on April 8, 2019, to accommodate an event on the block scheduled for April 6, 2019.  Staff is evaluating beginning work on portions of the project that are not on the block prior to April 8.

  • 07.08.2019: This week crews are installing the new secondary pedestals. Once we get the new pedestals in place we can begin removing the overhead primary and secondary lines on Block 34. Weather permitting I anticipate that we will have all the overhead lines removed from Block 34 by the end of next week.

  • 09.16.2019: The remaining primary and secondary poles have been removed from Block 34. A little work remains on the west portion of Duncan Street in the area. The project is nearing completion.
