Afternoon temperatures are expected to rise to 105 degrees by this weekend. Despite the dire forecast, work must continue on many construction projects in Greenville.
A work crew from Rocking S Construction Company of Mt. Vernon was busy running fiber optic lines under Stonewall Street in Greenville Tuesday afternoon. The lines are for Peoples Wireless, an Internet provider concentrating in the East Texas broad band market, according to Shane Mears, owner of the construction company. The crew found an irrigation line on state right of way that was not marked. A trench was dug and the water line was quickly repaired. These are just some of the problems that come up while directional drilling under roadways in a city” said Shane. Shane also remarked “we are glad that we found this tree to set up the drilling machine. You might say that we have it made in the shade”.
