Starting the week July 20th 2020, Hydro Ottawa will commence a project that involves the installation of a new duct structure and replacement of 3 transformers on Oakley Avenue. The pole line on the east side of Oakley Avenue will also be removed. This work is necessary in order to ensure the safety and reliability of electricity supply to the community.
Residents may notice 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.
Planned power interruptions are expected to occur as a result of this project. Customers impacted by a planned power interruption, will be contacted by Hydro Ottawa at least 72 hours prior to the power interruption taking place, by phone, text, email and/or written notice delivered to their door. Customers will also be notified if the power interruption is to extend beyond the original duration or if it is re-scheduled
