Bf SEPTEMBER Job Below Reading Railroad Bridge Now Practically Finished TWO STEAM SHOVELS GOING Working Night and Day on Sewer; Men Overcome in Tunnel Ginger of all kinds Is seen in the work now under way along the River Front. The job is practically com plete south of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad bridge and the steps will be finished to Market street with in the next few days. Then will follow as rapidly as possible the granolithic walk, which will enable Commissioner Taylor, of the Park Department, to restore the parking along the front south of the Market street bridge. This morning the Stucker Brothers Construction Company Installed an other steam shovel north of Calder street, and it will be possible with the two shovels going steadily, to clear up the low shore line west of the retain ing wall. This will also enable the contractors to complete the fill back of the steps so that the concrete work can go rapidly forward without In terruption. Yesterday a record was made in the construction of stringers, thirty-two having been built during the day. If the work on the steps proceeds as rap idly It ought to be possible to com plete the whole job between Calder and Maclay streets by September. Meanwhile Commissioner Taylor, co operating with Commissioner Lynch, head of the Department of Streets and Public Improvements, will complete arrangements for transferring the dirt from the subway at Second and Mul berry streets to the narrow stretches north of Calder. Mr. Taylor is also In communication with the few own ers of property who have not yet transferred their frontage to the city for park purposes, and hopes to have everything in shape to complete the park work as soon as the contractors are through with the wall. Til unci For Sewer Of all the improvement work that 1s now being carried on in the city, perhaps none Involves so much engi neering ingenuity as the construction of the sewer immediately south of Mulberry Street to take care of the drainaee after the new subways are completed. Tn order to save time and expense It was considered advisable to attempt the plan of tunneling beneath the earth's surface instead of excavating to the surface. Tn some 'instances the tunnel had to be driven at a depth of more than twenty feet. Roeks in many cases had to be cut away or even blasted. The working space is so small that not more than two men can be on duty at one time. Night work is necessary as well as! daylight work in order to hurry the Job. T.lnes of electric wiring have! been stretched on temporary poles! and lowered Into the hole. By the | light of electric bulbs the work is pushed ahead. Earth is removed by the great bucketfuls by swinging It up with a steam derrick. Now and, then the„iuen beneath the surface en-' counter sewer and other gases and! not infrequently they have to he brought to the surface to he revived, while on a number of occasions the victims had to he taken to the Harris burg Hospital for treatment.
