Crews finally replace Rhode Island Pole that had been held together with Duct tape March 26, 2018
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Crews have finally replaced a Telephone pole in Providence, Rhode Island, that was being held together by duct tape.
You read that right, “Held together by Duct Tape!”
WJAR-TV reports the pole was split in two several weeks ago when it was struck by a truck.
A crew with National Grid used Duct Tape to hold the pole together, and a Supervisor deemed it safe for the short term. Yes, that’s right, A Duct Taped Pole was deemed safe for nearly a Month!
A permanent repair was scheduled for nearly a Month after it was Taped up, but the Pole was finally replaced Friday after a resident expressed concern about its safety.
National Grid has been under fire as of late due to reports of leaving Customers in the dark for weeks at a time after No’r Easter storms hitting the North East.
It seems to be dealing with more and more issues of poor choices and business practices thru out New England.
You just got to love New England.
