Construction work and timeline
In late summer, you will see EPCOR contractors begin the last phase of the project. This phase involves stringing the transmission/distribution cables and fibre optic cable on the new power poles.
To minimize disruption to traffic, the cables will be strung in stages. Locations where the stringing will occur will have construction equipment on site and may require temporary lane or sidewalk closures. Temporary laydown areas will be setup as needed. Power outages may be required during certain construction activities. You will be provided with notice of any planned power outages in your area.
Additionally, work will continue on the existing power distribution system at various locations in your area to accommodate the project. This may involve activities such as installing or removing temporary poles, stringing or removing wires, line transfers and installing new pole mounted transformers.
Typical hours of construction will be from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm, Monday to Saturday. If required, these hours may be extended, and construction may occur on Sundays from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
