Over the past several weeks, National Grid has been digging up the street at the end of my driveway. Consequently, I have not been able to use it.
When I called them about it, I was told that no work was being done there. That’s when I decided to protest to prove them wrong. For the record, this was the third time they dug up the street, and in the same place. When the foreman of the contractor (PCM) showed up to remove me from my perch, I insisted the the excavation be covered with a metal plate. He said he had no order for one and that none was available anyway.
When the job was completed, he called me to apologize because there was an order for the plate but it was ignored.
