Location: Boardman, OR
The Wilson Lane Improvement Project will replace 43 aging poles and approximately 1.8 miles of line along Wilson Lane in south Boardman, between the intersections of Olson road and Paul Smith Road. This project will offer additional reliability measures that will provide an increase in capacity and assist in outage restoration. The construction will be rebuilding the current distribution line by replacing the existing poles and wire with taller poles and new, heavier conductor. The project runs through residential, irrigation and public properties. Landowner relationships are critical to the success of this project.
Anticipated Construction Schedule
Start Date: March 2022
