What is the scope of the project?

Since about 1990 all new construction has required underground utilities, but over 50% of our utilities remain above ground , including most major thoroughfares.

In 2002 we hired R.W. Beck (a large construction services company, now Leidos Engineering) to do an inventory of our overhead lines and also provide an estimate of the cost to bury all of it. During that process they identified approximately 60 miles of overhead utility lines within our town
