Salem councilors seek waiver for cable removal

(Continued)

The state representative, however, said he is not optimistic.

“I would be surprised if it’s a favorable response, but we have asked,” Keenan said.

Even if the waiver isn’t granted, Keenan said removing the old cables, unlike installing new ones, will require only limited construction and disruption.

“It’s going to be a quick shot down Derby Street,” he said.

Turiel said he hopes the state will change its mind and grant the waiver. It would help residents in both areas, he said, especially along Canal Street, which is in the midst of a lengthy and major roadway improvement project.

“If we don’t have to disrupt Canal Street when we have a construction project going on, so much the better,” he said.
