In this photo taken June 17, we see a crew from Moulison North Electrical Contractors installing the conduit bank in front of Morong Falmouth. These lines will carry electrical, phone, and communication services. Once these lines are fully installed, energized, and connected with Route One businesses, overhead electrical and data lines will be removed, creating a much more attractive streetscape.
