Line 17 Electric Distribution Re-Build Project

UC Project Manager: Jameson Parker

Contractor: Pike Construction

Projected Start Date: March 2022

Projected Completion: May 2022

Project Size: Turnbull Bay Road from Pioneer Trail to Airport Substation, East of Sunset.

Project Impact: This Modernization Roadmap initiative will improve electric reliability for customers served by this distribution line through load switching capability, storm hardening, and increased line capacity. The $1.9 million project strengthens the tie between Smyrna and Airport Substations for improved load transfer capacity under contingency conditions. Customers may experience temporary electric service disruptions during the transfer of service to the rebuilt lines. Drivers may experience temporary lane closures on Turnbull Bay Road as needed for project safety.
