PECO Electric Service Enhancement Project Update - Feb. 27

In Upper Makefield Township, PECO is continuing their service reliability improvement project.

The work area includes Taylorsville Rd., Washington Crossing Memorial Blvd., River Rd. south of Rt. 532 and the section of Mt. Eyre Rd east of Taylorsville Rd. The Washington Crossing Memorial Blvd. work will involve some new poles and significant wire and equipment upgrades.

Equipment upgrades include voltage increase from 4kv to 34kv, new poles where needed, wires, transformers, power surge protection and reclosers, all designed to improve load capacity, reliability and faster restoration of power during outages.

The project involves vegetative management ~ including pruning and cutting trees that may interfere with the wires. This tree work is planned to be completed by March 1, 2017.

The Township continues to work closely with PECO during this process.

 

The entire project is planned to be completed by late November 2017.
