MARLBOROUGH – While plans for 57 Main St. are on hold, plans to install a telephone pole, manhole and underground conduit are proceeding.

On Oct. 23, the City Council approved the plans.

The new pole will be jointly owned by Massachusetts Electric and Verizon, and it will be installed on High Street, about 300 feet east of the intersection of High and Bolton streets.

In addition, a new manhole and underground conduit will be installed.

According to an official from Verizon, the project would take two-three days to complete.

The project is adjacent to 57 Main St., the former Rowe Funeral Home. Plans to develop the site, known as Exchange Place, are currently in litigation. JW Capital Partners LLC, the owner of the site, is suing the city over the number of offsite parking spaces the city will allow.

Current plans for Exchange Place call for 99 units and 25 on-site spaces.
