Electric Substation

Current construction activities include:

  • Demolition of the remaining structure
  • Removal of existing on-site utility lines

Fencing around the substation site has been installed to provide a safe environment for the community and for our workers. Only authorized personnel should enter the substation construction site.

Underground Transmission Line and Transition Structures

Construction of the underground transmission line will begin during second quarter 2018. Roadwork updates will be posted here as the construction start date approaches.
