For the past couple of weeks, there has been an uncommon amount of workers on the main street of our little town here in the Foothills. Apparently, there is money set aside in a fund someplace to take all of these power poles and lines and place them underground. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it personally.
The traffic is a mess. Lots of men with signs and flags stopping traffic all during the day. They seem to have that pretty well managed though and there is not much of a delay but there is a bit of inconvenience.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company is doing the majority of the work with some of the tasks being subbed out to other companies. They have to bury electrical boxes underground, trench the road and lay the pipes and electricity in those trenches and then eventually remove all the overhead power poles and transmission lines.
