LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Workers digging up a small section of Chatsworth Avenue uncovered trolley tracks, which amazed pedestrians passing by but delayed the crew replacing a sewer pipe .
A foreman from Vitello Sewer, Water Main and Heating and Plumbing Service, which is supervising the project said they have been running into a lot of interference during the process of fixing the pipe.
The three-man crew continued to excavate a narrow section of road in front of Villa Maria Wednesday. The pipe is nine feet below the surface, but the crew has only dug five feet since they began
Monday because they have had to work around the trolley tracks, as well as two water mains, the same foreman said.
They expect to reach the sewer pipe by Thursday or Friday, and replace it sometime next week. That will only take a few hours, during which those in the one building the pipe services won't be able to use the toilet, the worker explained.
The pipe replacement is an upgrade and the crew originally expected to complete it within one week. Police have blocked parking in front of the Post Office to make enough room for traffic both ways, which is limited to one side of Chatsworth Avenue during construction.
