Dear Neighbors -
We wanted to provide a quick update from our current work sites on Fairfield Street, Fort Avenue, and Hawthorne Boulevard.
As you know, duct bank installation continues on Fairfield Street and Fort Avenue. The Fairfield Street crew continues to make steady progress down the street in the direction of Cabot Street. With approximately three-quarters of the construction complete, over the next two weeks contractors expect to finish their work the street.
Our crew on Fort Avenue is continuing their work as they trench and install duct bank in the direction of Essex Street. As a reminder this crew is goal is to finish the final stretch of duct bank between the Fort Avenue-Webb Street intersection, the Essex Street manholes, and a small section of Essex Street between English Street and Forrester Street.
Contractors at the Hawthorne Boulevard work site are also making good progress -- as of Wednesday morning the final manhole was set in the excavation. Moving forward, this manhole crew has some remaining underground work to complete, before they backfill, pave and prepare the work site to be reopened to regular traffic.
Police details will be present to facilitate vehicle and pedestrian traffic management around construction sites. We ask that those on foot exercise caution when approaching these active work areas to minimize risks to personal safety, and to avoid any interference with construction.
We appreciate your patience and look forward to finishing all underground construction for the Salem Cable Project and will continue to keep you updated. As always, please feel free to contact us on our toll-free outreach hotline -- 844-SALEM-CABLE -- or through our website's Contact Us page.
