Subject: Merchantville Borough underground construction segment 2
Tomorrow our underground construction crews will return to the manhole on
Lexington Ave., just south W. Maple Ave. to install conduits towards Maple Ave.
Your PD will provide traffic control and one lane on Lexington Ave. will be
open to local traffic. At a later date another contractor will install conduits on
Lexington Ave. from the walk path to W. Maple Ave and across W. Maple Ave.
onto Lexington Ave.
When we are completed with the conduits on Lexington Ave. in Pennsauken Twp.,
we will return to this same man hole south of Maple Ave. and connect the conduits
on the other side of the manhole towards Volan Street.
When we installed this manhole we encountered quite a bit of ground water.
To install the conduits between the manhole and Volan Street we will need to move
the existing dewatering activity on Lexington Ave. in Pennsauken to this location.
Our normal work hours are M-F from 7am to 8pm. During this work we request your
approval to work Saturdays from 8am to 6pm. We will notify the residents in this area
along Lexington Ave. of our work schedule.
Should you have any questions or concerns, I am available by cell 24/7
or can meet you in Merchantville Borough. I thank you for your cooperation.
