Up and down Nannyhagen Road in Thornwood, large white pipes line both sides of the street, marked by orange cones. The pipes cross into driveways and front yards of the residential area.
Joe Schettino of Thornwood, lives off of Nannyhagen and notes that despite the eyesore in front of his lawn and the disruptive construction, the project has not been a nuisance.
"They've been pretty fair with everything, I don't have any complaints," Schettino said. "I just drive right over the pipes no problem, if anything maybe the water pressure will get a little low sometimes,"
The reason behind the lack of pressure is the Town of Mount Pleasant Water Department reworking the water mains along Nannyhagen. The project began earlier this spring and is set to be completed by the end of the month, Peter Sciliano, Mount Pleasant's superintendent of highways, said.
Sciliano said the construction was going smoothly.
"As far as I know it's been fine, we haven't had any complaints," Sciliano said.
The current road construction is within the vicinity of Westlake High School and Middle School. Both schools' graduation ceremonies are scheduled for later this week and should bring a high level of traffic along Nannyhagen.
Schettino said that the construction may be a burden for the nearby schools.
"I think it might be a problem for the school buses especially when it's down to one lane when they're drilling and what not," he said.
