Several of our contract crews were deployed to assist with Hurricane Ida recovery in Louisiana and are resuming work in Tideland territory as they are released to return to North Carolina.
Tideland has hired Lucas Tree Experts and Gunnison Tree Service to trim trees in our rights-of-way. During October, Lucas will be trimming out the Rose Bay, Dowry Creek, Ponzer, and Rose Acre circuits. Gunnison will be trimming out the Hyde County circuit out of our Pantego substation (Beech Ridge and Hwy 264).
Our right-of-way treatment contractor, Progressive Solutions, will continue spraying in our Pantego operational district.
We will have construction crews with Lee Electric on the Orchard Creek Road portion of the Merritt circuit, the St. Delights Church Road portion of the Cayton Road circuits, and on the Allen Road portion of the Dowry Creek circuit.
River City construction crews are continuing pole change-outs along Highway 32 and Broad Creek Road (Washington). This is a high-traffic area so please give these crews a wide berth when traveling in this work zone.
An Osmose crew will continue conducting pole inspections in our Engelhard operational district.
