A new power pole was being installed on Hill Street in Hannibal Monday morning. The work was being performed by Board of Public Works personnel.

Traffic on Hill Street in Hannibal, between Third and Fourth streets, was reduced to one lane Monday morning while a new power pole was being prepared for use by Board of Public Works personnel.

The new pole will eventually supply power to the Best Western On the River Hotel expansion, now being built.

Jared Stewart, electric line superinendent of the BPW, anticipated the pole work would wrap up on Tuesday.

The pole project was to have started last Wednesday, but the installation was delayed by rain.

In April, the BPW was raising the power lines that run through the alley between Hill and Bird streets, behind the new hotel building.
