I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and can spend it with family and friends no matter where you are.
For those who have recently driven down Ranch Road from Highway 24 you have noticed that IREA has started the pole replacement and rerouting project. IREA has informed us that they are upgrading the poles from single phase to three phase. This will mean slightly taller poles with crossbars at the top to handle the additional two lines. The reason for this upgrade is to increase capacity and provide better service for our area. Some runs are moving from the middle of a field to along the road so they will be easier to maintain, especially in the winter.
The work planned for this winter is to run the new poles down Ranch Road from Highway 24 to Tapedero Road. Additionally they will run new poles from Ranch Road down to the end of Sombrero Road and from Ranch Road down to the end of Tapedero Road.
We have been told that IREA will communicate directly with those that will be impacted by any outage as their work progresses.
