Utility Break on Wilder Ave/Alley

I thought I posted this on Tuesday. I was refering to this in the prior post.

Monday the City was working on Sewer/Storm Water Pipes on the Wilder Ave/Alley between 12th and 11th Streets. They cut phone lines for 100 homes and a gas pipe. The phone lines are from the 1920's or 1930's and were in lead pipe. The lines were covered in paper not plastic and were not color coded so the phone guys had a long job connectiong them. The connection is the silver cylinder in between the treads. The yellow pipe is the cap on the gas line.
