PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Crews have finally replaced a Telephone pole in Providence, Rhode Island, that was being held together by duct tape.
You read that right, “Held together by Duct Tape!”
WJAR-TV reports the pole was split in two several weeks ago when it was struck by a truck.
A crew with National Grid used Duct Tape to hold the pole together, and a Supervisor deemed it safe for the short term. Yes, that’s right, A Duct Taped Pole was deemed safe for nearly a Month!
A permanent repair was scheduled for nearly a Month after it was Taped up, but the Pole was finally replaced Friday after a resident expressed concern about its safety.
National Grid has been under fire as of late due to reports of leaving Customers in the dark for weeks at a time after No’r Easter storms hitting the North East.
It seems to be dealing with more and more issues of poor choices and business practices thru out New England.
