Project Description

This project took place along NE Bergman Road between NE Day Road and Miller Road NE. Construction began in mid-September and was completed in November. 

Crews replaced approximately 4,000 feet of existing standard overhead wire with tree wire. Tree wire is a specialized coated overhead wire which is strong enough to withstand a tree limb falling into the line, and can significantly reduce the frequency of tree-related power outages. Since trees are the number one cause of outages on the Island, installing tree wire helps us prevent outages and continue to provide safe, dependable and efficient service.
