PARIS, TN: Utility pole requires deep foundation

Richard Douglas (left) of Paragon Testing and Randy Voykin of McKinney Drilling look into a water-filled 40-foot deep hole that will provide the base for a utility pole near the corner of North Market and Rison streets. Crews were busy early Tuesday afternoon pumping the water from the hole; it is part of the Highway 641 widening project going north to Murray. Rison Street was closed at least for Monday and Tuesday with the possibility of it being closed today as well.
