Underground Utilities Project

Will overhead wires and poles be removed? Relocating utility lines underground in all or part of the project area would greatly enhance the appearance of the Village and has been recommended in multiple unfulfilled plans for York Village over seven decades. Underground utility project costs do not qualify for traditional Federal or State funding. The cost to accomplish this will be the responsibility of the town of York. The consultants continue to develop design and cost estimates for 1) moving all utilities in the immediate vicinity of the intersection underground at the same time the Village improvements are implemented and 2) installing underground conduits at the same time as the roadway realignment work, but delaying burying the utility lines to a later date. A funding request will may or may not be presented on an underground utility project in the future based on further work.
