What to expect during construction
While we complete the work for the Strathcona Area Transmission Project, you can expect to see activity that's typical to construction, including company vehicles and equipment in your neighbourhood.
Power outages will be required during certain construction activities. You will be provided with at least two weeks notice of any planned power outages.
Typical construction hours will be weekdays and alternating weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If required, these hours may be extended to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m on weekends.
This work will be noisy at times and involve the use of hydrovac trucks, drilling rigs, large trucks, and heavy machinery.
We will comply with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control. If it is necessary to temporarily exceed acceptable noise levels or go past typical construction hours, we will work with the City of Edmonton to obtain the necessary permits and provide you with advanced notice.
Some tree trimming and removal will be required along the route. Most of these trees are located on City of Edmonton property. If a tree on your property needs to be trimmed or removed, we will contact you in advance to discuss the required work.
We are committed to public and employee safety. All construction activities will be in accordance with City of Edmonton bylaws, Occupational Health & Safety requirements, and EPCOR's strict health, safety and environment procedures and guidelines. All work areas will be maintained in a safe and secure manner.
