Re: Pole Line Additions and Installations – Boundary Road/Russel Road – Hydro Ottawa Project #9202013796
I am writing to inform you of electrical service improvements Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking in your ward. The project involves increasing the system capacity on some of the existing hydro poles, and installing new poles in the Carlsbad Springs and Boundary Road area. This work will take place on Boundary Road (between Russel Road and Mitch Owens Road) and Russel Road (west of Boundary Road). This work is necessary to maintain the reliability of the electricity distribution system in the area.
Work on this project is scheduled to commence on August 20, 2018 and continue until December 14, 2018. Residents will notice an increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities and construction vehicles.
Traffic control will be implemented when required to ensure that roads and driveways remain accessible and safe to residents and staff. In order to minimize noise concerns, we will ensure that work is completed weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Be assured that all residents and businesses in the affected area will receive advanced notice of the project and be provided with a point of contact. Planned power interruptions are expected to occur as a result of this project. We will work diligently to reduce disruptions and our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
Hydro Ottawa is committed to delivering safe, reliable electricity service and keeping you informed of upgrades and emergency work taking place in your community.
