Stay Healthy When You Live Near Excavation

Jackhammer being used on city sidewalk.

It happens all over the City, and soon it will start happening to me and my neighbors, right here on Gore Street in East Cambridge. Excavation is being done all down our street to put in a sewer line for North Point (now Cambridge Crossing). This will be closely followed by excavation for a new Eversource gas line. Followed by excavation for a new water main. Followed by jackhammering for replacement of sidewalks. In all, within roughly eighteen months, we will experience four – FOUR!
