Fortis Alberta 610013030 Castle Junction 551L Rebuild

FortisAlberta is proposing to replace part of the 551L line, from Castle junction to Silver city, as the structure is nearing the end of its' structural integrity. In total 1.6km of line will be rebuilt. The new line will be placed adjacent to the existing infrastructure within the RoW, in order for the power cables to be transferred over. The project would like to commence in September and will take 3 weeks to complete.
