Crews from Severino Trucking Company and Maine Drilling and Blasting will resume blasting operations on Dover's waterfront development site the week of Oct. 15, 2018. Blasting is scheduled Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and will consist of a single blast each day. The remainder of work each day will consist of removing material.

The blasting site is the area known as "the bluff," a steep area of ledge that borders River Street. The ledge is being excavated as part of the City's waterfront development project.

Although blasting operations are not loud, the ground within the vicinity of the blasting may tremble.

Crews from Severino Trucking Company and Maine Drilling and Blasting will resume blasting operations on Dover's waterfront development site the week of Oct. 15, 2018. Blasting is scheduled Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and will consist of a single blast each day. The remainder of work each day will consist of removing material.

The blasting site is the area known as "the bluff," a steep area of ledge that borders River Street. The ledge is being excavated as part of the City's waterfront development project.

Although blasting operations are not loud, the ground within the vicinity of the blasting may tremble.

The five-acre bluff is part of the City's 12-acre waterfront parcel slated for development. The bluff's 3.7 acres of ledge will be excavated to street level to allow for more buildable land. The Cochecho Waterfront Development Advisory Committee, which oversees the project, recently selected Cathartes as the preferred developer for the project on the City owned waterfront property.
