My office has recently received a number of calls about the Utilities Undergrounding Program in northwest Clairemont, so I thought I would take this opportunity to clear up any questions or concerns.

Project Block 6J: After all trenching operations were completed, the cabling portion of the work began. Cabling involves technicians placing new utilities lines in the new conduits so that the new lines can be brought into service. Once that occurs, the process to “cut-over” customers from overhead to underground services will begin. Once customers have been cut-over, the overhead lines will be removed. The City anticipates this process will move very swiftly and will cause minimal disruptions and distractions.
