State Street Project
Marshfield Utilities is replacing buried underground lines that were installed in the early 70s and are near end of life. Most of the facilities being replaced are in and along backyards on private property. Underground light circuits in the area and few road crossing will take place with minimal impact. As part of this project, we are also converting 525 feet of overhead power line to underground power line along the Wildwood Trail west of Adams Avenue. This will eliminate the need to maintain the required clearnace around energized lines by trimming trees. In time, this piece of trail will be able to regain a more naturalized look and feel.
The east third of this project was started last year and is near complete. The remainder will start back up again as digging conditions improve the closer we get to summer.
Work on Edison St. from Palmetto Ave. to Hinman Ave. will begin on Monday, July 8th. We will be replacing the existing 6 inch cast iron water main with an 8 inch PVC water main by the pipe bursting method. We expect this project to last 2 to 3 weeks.
Work on 4th St from Columbus Ave. to Adams Ave. will begin immediately after the Edison project and will last about 2 weeks. Like Edison St., we will be replacing the existing 6 inch cast iron water main with a new 8 inch PVC water main using the pipe bursting method.
