Somerset - Manhole Upgrade

Start Date:
End Date:

Starting July 22, 2020, Hydro Ottawa will be upgrading four manholes located at the intersection of Albert Street and O’Connor Street to improve the reliability of the electrical service in the area.

Essential work such as the Albert Street manholes upgrade project will be undertaken now while traffic volumes are low in the downtown area and have minimal impact on critical intersection of the city such as the Albert Street and O’Connor Street intersection.

There will be 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 not expected to occur as a result of this project, and our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

Affected street: Intersection of Albert Street at O’Connor Street

Project start date: July 22, 2020

Project completion date: September 4, 2020
