Pepco will work between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22, and Monday, Nov. 23, near 2nd Street. The work involves pulling cables in four underground. Two vaults are located under the I-695 overpass at 2nd St. and Virginia Ave. The two other vaults are located on 2nd St. south of the 2nd and Virginia Ave. intersection. This work will be confined to the vaults and will not be unusually loud, dusty, or cause high vibrations. CSX will implement mitigation efforts to limit the potential impact of the work and does not expect the work will be disruptive to neighbors. This work is not expected to require any power outages. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
