The project is currently on schedule to meet the substantial completion date of December 15, 2005.

Two separate incidents involving damage to power lines to residences occurred during this period.  Neither incident resulted in any substantial damage to property, other than fixing the lines.  Power was restored to the homeowners, in both instances, within several hours.  We have addressed the safety hazards to the work from overhead lines during our project safety meetings and have also installed warning signs at all overhead power line locations within the project limits to further identify and warn of this safety hazard.

There were no material disputes or claims, actions or assertions against Contractor, the Project or Project Right of way, or Lien claims or stop notices file or threatened to be filed by any Person for the period.
