Police Officer William Jones works a detail as test pits are dug Monday, Feb. 24 in the Hyde Square area.

You’ve probably noticed the holes being dug in the streets of Hyde Square.

Veteran JP beat cop William Jones, who was working a detail at the rotary in Hyde Square on Monday, explained that test pits are being dug for a utility replacement project.

I’m reaching out to Feeney Brothers, who are doing the excavation work, for more details. When I find out, I’ll update this post.
