From Utility Line Services:
"This is to update you all on our progress in Narberth that we have to date and prep you for what is upcoming. In the next couple weeks. All the services on the Essex Ave project will be complete today. The retirement for this job is scheduled for this upcoming Monday weather permitting. This will complete all of the work on the following streets:
The service crews are currently have half the services complete and should be complete with the services on this job by the end of the week barring any issues with customer contacts. If we get the services complete on Forrest by the end of the week we will also have the Low Pressure Cast Iron mains retired on Forrest Ave between Woodbine and Haverford As well as Woodbine Ave between Narberth Ave and Essex Ave. Once the services are complete on Forrest these crews will progress to Narberth Ave between Haverford Ave and Montgomery Ave.
My other grouping of service crews are working on Wayne Ave between Essex and Narberth Ave as well As Price Ave between Grayling and Narberth Ave. These streets should be completing over the next two weeks and we are set up to retire the mains right behind the last service transfer on each project.
I have had a crew working to prepare the retirements on all active jobs to expedite the retirements and complete our work for this year as quickly as possible. Since there is no area for a check on the attached spreadsheet for retirement prep they will be marked as main installation, but be assured all the main installation is complete for this year’s work. This will only be small holes plated for the retirement preparations.
