Red Deer Area Transmission Development Project
AltaLink is upgrading its transmission system in the Red Deer area. Three lines in Red Deer will be rebuilt, with work happening from 2014 to 2016.
The following transmission lines are being rebuilt:
- Line between Benalto and southwest Red Deer
- Line between the Red Deer 63S Substation (located near the Red Deer County offices) to Red Deer South 194S Substation (near the Taylor Drive Bridge) and to Red Deer North 217S Substation (near the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant)
- 755L transmission line between southwest Red Deer and the Nova Chemicals plant south of Joffre
Residents near these transmission lines may notice construction activity, including trail closures and tree removal. AltaLink will post signs at affected trails and notify nearby residents.
