Starting on May 10, 2021, Hydro Ottawa will be completing a project being completed involves pole replacements of 14 existing poles on Walkley Road between Springfield Drive and Bank Street. Please note that Hydro Ottawa continues to follow the provincial directives surrounding COVID-19 and would like to confirm that this work has been deemed essential to providing a safe and reliable supply of power to our customers.
Understanding that this is a sensitive time with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with many residents working from home and modified business hours, we recognize that any construction activities and planned power interruption can be very disruptive. Our goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so we can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future.
Residents may notice increased construction presence throughout the project, including construction vehicles. Traffic control, lane reductions and sidewalk closures will be implemented throughout the project to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe and accessible to residents and staff. All precautionary measures will be taken to ensure social distancing and public health guidelines are respected.
Planned power outages are expected to occur as a result of this project. Residents that are impacted will be contacted by phone, text and/or email. Further, written notification will be provided to impacted homes and businesses at the time of the scheduled outage. In case of adverse weather, the outage may be rescheduled.
Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
