DPW CAUTIONS DRIVERS ABOUT BLASTING

0

July 16, 2001 – Part of the ongoing installation of sewer lines to the new Mangrove Lagoon Waste Water Treatment Center will include occasional blasting along the Bovoni Road, Highway 30, near the entrance to the Bovoni Landfill and east to Turpentine Run.
Along with exercising caution, motorists will be asked to turn off two-way radios and cell phones within 350 feet of the blasting. Signs will be posted to show where the no-phones radius begins, according to Public Works Commissioner Wayne Callwood.
Sewer lines in the area will be laid 18 feet below the road surface, necessitating the blasting. According to treatment plant personnel, long-term plans for Bovoni Road include removing some of the high spots. Therefore the pipe needs to be placed lower than where the road will be dropped.
The construction work and blasting are expected to continue through December.
Callwood suggested motorists select alternative routes whenever possible.
