Tis the season….for infrastructure renewal

As the new water and sewer work on Mann Avenue and Range Road continues, the past meets the future. A pile of old pipes is dumped at the roadside while the new pipe waits for the installation. The plastic pipes are designed to be in use into the next century. Work on the streets is expected to continue until the late fall.

The end result will be an improved turn at the corner.

Workers digging the Mann Street trenches at Blackburn Ave. found a number of very large boulders in their way. The rocks were a surprise to the workers and not expected in Sandy Hill.
