Street Work on the Way to Work

A while back, I had heard about some street work that was happening on our street. There were lots of signs up the days before, peppering much of the area near our house. Around 7:30AM or so, we started to hear the sound of an impact hammer, digging into the street.

It was close enough that it shook the house a little. On walking outside, we spotted this truck – with something I assumed would be going into the street.

I wondered what it was, and how it might get installed. I knew the work was sewer related, but I had a hard time understanding how this thing would get situated into the ground.

About a half block south of us, we found a small crew working on the street. They were all in pretty good spirits, and were smiling as Liz and I gawked. When the guy in the ground saw I was taking photos, he held up his as though he were a strongman showing off his bicep.

I was already putting my camera away at this point, but everyone was laughing. I tried to get him to pose again, but no luck.

I think it was clear from our fascination that we were really interested in their work. Once more, I wished I could have stuck around for a few hours, peppering them with questions and watching them go about their tasks.
