Public Works

In my travels through downtown Ellicott City yesterday I came across this “repair” job on a utility pole in front of Mumbles and Squeaks toy store.

Apparently the pole, owned by BGE, was damaged and needed to be replaced. The BGE crews came out and installed a new pole and put their lines on it. The other lines on the old pole belong to Verizon. According to Ed, one of the owners of the toy shop, Verizon can’t get a crew out to move their lines until sometime after the holiday weekend.
I think it would be wise to avoid parking along this part of Main Street until that occurs.
