Placing those electric lines underground
“I think it went well.” That is how Walhalla’s Scott Parris described a meeting this week to plan for the city’s Streetscape project. In this meeting Parris, along with a representative of the city’s contract landscape engineering company, talked with Duke Energy officials about the long-talked about project to bury electric power lines in a four-block Main Street commercial area. Parris, however, said he can’t predict yet when the work will start. Burying those lines and replacing old water and sewer lines are considered the first steps in Streetscape which, ultimately, is to remake Main Street—between the blocks at Ann to Tugaloo streets.
