Starting the last week of April, EPCOR will begin work on the existing power distribution system at various locations to accommodate the West Edmonton Transmission Upgrade Project. This work is expected to be completed by the end of May and may involve activities such as installing temporary poles, stringing new wires, and installing new pole mounted transformers.
What to expect during construction
• Temporary lane disruptions can be expected throughout the work; however, access to garages will be maintained throughout construction.
• Tree trimming will be required in certain areas to maintain clearance between the power lines and vegetation.
• Noise will be typical to construction. We will comply with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control. If it's necessary to temporarily exceed acceptable noise levels, we will work with the City of Edmonton to obtain the necessary permits.
• Power outages may be required during certain construction activities. You will be provided with notice of any planned power outages.
