Project Update: June 22, 2022


Next week you can expect to see continued construction activity on Newport Avenue between George Road and Morgan Road as crews work to install the last manhole at this work site.

As was the case with our other recent manhole installations, traffic will be maintained in both directions during the vast of majority of this activity.

That said, on Wednesday, July 27 – per the direction of local safety officials – traffic on this section of Newport Avenue will be detoured starting at 7:00PM while our crews lower the manholes into place. Hours for evening construction will be from 7:00PM to midnight (approximately).

For more detail on this short-term manhole installation traffic management plan, please visit or call our project hotline.

Additionally, our duct bank installation crew will shift the focus of its work and move its work site to Newport Avenue between Newport Terrace and George Road.

We ask that drivers and pedestrians remain mindful of lane shifts, posted traffic signage, and the direction of police details stationed around the work zone.

Please know that construction is scheduled to minimize the impact on traffic and everyday life; sections of your street will likely only be impacted by the construction for weeks—not years. That said, we understand that construction doesn’t always feel “short-term” when it’s in front of your home or business. As work begins in your area, we will continue to work to mitigate inconveniences that come up to the greatest extent feasible. Please let us know about upcoming deliveries, schedules, and events that could be impacted by work.
