Dmitry snapped the carnage along Arsenal Street, reports more poles could topple.
Do you like how UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
These poles are relatively recent; the sidewalks were poured over the past two summers as part of the Arsenal St. buildup.
I suspect that the poles and sidewalks will have to be replaced for the whole stretch between School and Irving.
I'm sure it's because they were installed cheaply, as all new development is done cheaply. Oy.
* Minimal impact to power during storms
* Allows for a strong tree canopy along the street that is not subject to Eversource butchering every year

The 'real' power is already buried - there's a substation / transformer farm on the other side of Irving St. These poles are largely cable TV and local power drops to customers along Arsenal.
Now the contractors can double their earnings!
They call it "Watertown" for a reason.
This may seem why Canadians call them hydro poles.
Just ordered delivery from our local Chinese place here in Watertown. Cancel the Red Cross.
Guess we (and the Chinese place) are in a sweet spot that was unaffected, Thank God.
