Hydro poles to be replaced on Goulbourn and Norway

(via Councillor Shad Qadri)

Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking electrical service improvements in Stittsville starting next month. The project involves replacing aging hydro poles on Goulbourn Street (between Cypress Gardens and Elm Crescent) and Norway Spruce Street (between Elm Crescent and Bell Street). This project will improve the reliability of the electrical distribution system in the Stittsville area.

Work is scheduled to commence in April and continue until the end of July. Residents will notice an increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities. In order to minimize noise concerns, that work will be completed weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Traffic control will be implemented when required in order to ensure that roads and driveways remain accessible and safe to residents. The qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

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 regarding the service improvements in their area. Customers will also receive advance notification prior to any planned power interruption affecting their premises.
