We will be replacing portions of the existing fence around the Woodcroft Substation, located at 11809 142 Street (see map).

​Why is the fence being replaced?

Upgrading portions of the fence around the substation will enhance its safety and security while allowing us to continue to provide you with safe and reliable power service.

What will the new wall look like?

The new wall portions will be made out of concrete with a ledgestone finish. To enhance the aesthetics of the new wall and to incorporate the look of the community, the ledgestone finish will be similar in colour to other buildings in the area. The picture below is a sample of what the wall colour may look like.
The new wall sections will be in approximately the same location as the existing fence, as shown on the map. The new wall sections will be 10 feet high and the sections of the fence that we are not replacing will remain chain link.

NOTE: This is a stock photo; actual color may vary. We will have a sample of ledgestone, including our proposed color, at our open house.

Construction Details

What to Expect During Construction


You can expect to see activity that is typical to construction, including company / contractor vehicles and equipment in your neighbourhood. Some typical construction activities that you may see include:

  • Equipment digging holes to install the new fence posts
  • Equipment lifting and installing sections of the new fence

Construction Noise

Work on the fence will create typical noise associated with construction. We will take measures to ensure we 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 receive necessary permits.

Hours of Operation

We anticipate our hours of work for this project to be Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., however, occasional overtime may be required.

Road Closures

  • We will reduce 142 Street northbound, between 118 and 120 Avenue to one lane during portions of construction.
  • We do not anticipate closing the lane behind the Woodcroft substation; however, we may temporarily block accesspublic road closures are expected.

Power Supply

We do not anticipate any power service interruptions from this proposed work. If we require a planned power service interruption to complete a portion of the work we will notify you in advance.

Work Space

All work areas will be safe and secure. All construction activities will be in accordance with the City of Edmonton bylaws, Occupational Health and Safety requirements as well as EPCOR’s strict health, safety and environmental procedures and guidelines.
