EWEB schedules 1 p.m. blasting Nov. 16-17-18, Nov. 23-24

Dear East 40th Neighbors,

We want to make you aware that two additional blasting days have been scheduled to make up time lost due to Veterans Day and Thanksgiving.
Following is the blasting schedule for the next couple of weeks:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 16
  • Wednesday, Nov. 17 (make up for Veterans Day)
  • Thursday, Nov. 18
  • Tuesday, Nov. 23
  • Wednesday, Nov. 24 (make up for Thanksgiving)

As a reminder, scheduled blasts will occur between 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. The actual blast will last only a couple of seconds.

Horn safety signals will sound five minutes and one minute before the blast and at the conclusion of the blast.

If you are near the construction site and hear a horn signal, please be aware blasting activity will occur shortly and follow instructions of site personnel or any additional signage that may be posted.

Additional updates

Excavation work is continuing, concurrent with drilling and blasting.

On Monday, Nov. 15 we will begin installing a temporary construction power supply. The new conduit will be bored from an electric box near 4065 Patterson St. There could be traffic impacts on Patterson St. that day.

EWEB project team and contractors review safety measures prior to Nov. 9 controlled blast.

We’re investing for today’s residents and for generations to come. Here, one of our littlest customers is getting a front row seat to construction.
