We all depend on safe, reliable energy. Now more than ever. That’s why we’re working in your neighborhood to make a few improvements to our electrical equipment. (The big trucks are hard to miss.) Our work includes a multiyear project to upgrade transmission towers between Gresham and Estacada. We will first inspect our equipment along the Springwater Corridor and Cazadero trails and trim or remove some of the shrubs, blackberries and other vegetation surrounding our towers. This work prepares us for system upgrades in 2021. When our work is done, your energy will be safer and more reliable and take us one step closer to Oregon’s clean energy future. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Map and schedule
Initial inspection schedule* September 2020 to December 2021 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., unless permits dictate otherwise *Pending Oregon State Parks and Portland Parks permit approval. This schedule may change based on the needs of the project.
What to expect
You’ll see our crews working in the areas highlighted on the map.
We do not expect any planned power outages, but if that changes, we’ll send out letters and leave a notice on your door at least 48 hours in advance.
There’s nothing as important as your safety. To keep pedestrians, cyclists and drivers safe, we will close lanes and reserve street parking. This will help make room for equipment and create a safety buffer between you and our crews.
Watch for temporary lane or street closures and detours.
Allow for extra time for commuting through these areas.
Follow directions from any flaggers, detours and signs.
Watch for “no parking” signs.
Avoid all work areas and equipment.
Make sure children know to never touch construction equipment.
Making our equipment safer and more reliable is an investment in a cleaner energy future for Oregon.
