The power poles and power lines along Kerry Wood Drive have reached the end of their useful life and will be replaced this year. Electric Light & Power crews will be working to upgrade this part of the electrical distribution system.
The existing power poles, located on the south side of Kerry Wood Drive near the escarpment over Great Chief Park, are not easily accessible and pose challenges for crews when repairs and maintenance are required. To resolve this issue, the old infrastructure will be removed and rebuilt in the same location as the existing service poles which are opposite homes along the residential back alley.
Timeline: This project is expected to begin in late August and will take approximately two months to complete.
Resident impacts: Localized power outages will be required at key stages of the project, but these outages are typically short in duration, likely less than 10 minutes. We will make every effort to ensure residents are informed of all planned outages in advance.
