Village Market open during construction on Second Street
The second phase of the Edison vault replacement project began at the end of January. This phase consists of removal of the existing electrical vault and placement of a new vault. During this phase, Second Street between Indian Hill Boulevard and Yale Avenue will remain closed, including nights and weekends.
The road closure is necessary for safety purposes, as construction and electrical equipment will be stored on the street in order to maintain power during business hours.
The Village Market, located in the center of the construction site, remains open for business. The shop’s owner expressed concern to the COURIER about the parking limitations and disruption to business during construction. Residents are reminded to help local businesses thrive by taking extra steps to patronize the shop during the construction period.
Access to the alleyway and adjacent parking lots will be closed at Second Street, but access will remain open at all times from Indian Hill Boulevard, First Street and Bonita Avenue.
The work is expected to be completed no later than the week of March 12. All businesses affected by the required overnight power outages will be contacted directly by Southern California Edison.
