Manchester Road Streetscape Phase 3

August 12, 2019

The contractor has completed the placing of underground conduits for Ameren and Spectrum for the existing overhead line crossings over Manchester Road.  Ameren has completed most of their work to place their lines in these new underground conduits, and expects to complete their work in the next week.  Spectrum is scheduled to transfer all their lines to the new poles overnight on August 22 & 23.  Missouri-American is working out the final details prior to beginning their waterline relocation work in August.  Their work is expected to take approximately 6 weeks once they get started.  ATT splicing work will continue and they have started placing conduits for their relocation work on the west end of the project. Once those conduits are placed, ATT will begin splicing on that section of the project.
