Pepco relocations are complete with exception of pole removal that will follow removal of the overhead Verizon lines.

Verizon Underground Work

Installation of the underground duct bank in Triangle Lane started on January 7, 2019, and progressed nicely during the week. The work was performed at night, as planned, with little to no impact on local businesses. Work was halted on Sunday night 1/13 due to heavy snow and will not resume until road conditions improve later this week.

See Chart below for Verizon schedule.

Work on the Town Plaza, located south of Reedie Drive, has started. The contractor has pursued demolition of existing concrete, installation of silt fence, and is ready to commence rough grading. This work will continue in-earnest as soon as the snow clears.

The Town Plaza will include an amphitheater, stage, elevated walkways to Georgia Ave and to the WMATA Tower, as well as Art. Future reports will detail construction updates.

All work associated with the Town Plaza is scheduled to be complete by May 2020, at building opening.
