Digging

Over the weekend I stopped by the digging on Drexel Drive to see how work was progressing on the new street. The most impressive thing to see was the big hole on the north side of Drexel Drive.
 A hole on the other side of the road is not as deep. It appears that the two holes are in the process of being connected.
The area has limestone close to the surface (as one might expect given how close it is to the quarry.) In the distance below you can see some blue-green pipes that have not yet been installed. Last time I was by the site, similar pipes were much closer to where the picture was taken. They seem to have all been installed.

Cool. Bore and jacking sanitary sewer into place likely.
