Lighting up Water Street

PORT TOWNSEND — FB Titan Powerline Foreman Drew Plato, left, helps to guide a new street slight post along with crew member Michael Lake on Water Street in downtown Port Townsend on Monday.

The crew, which included Jimmy Holmes in a bucket truck, will continue to work between Tyler and Taylor streets today.

Titan is a contractor hired by the Jefferson Public Utility District to remove overhead wires and put them underground on Water Street and to install the new street lights.

The project, which is estimated to cost between $1.5 million and $1.75 million, is expected to last through mid-February and include fiber connections underground.
