Project Basics

System upgrades you'll see in your area:

  • Crews will replace existing electrical poles and will upgrade underground structures and equipment.
  • Some excavation and trenching may occur during construction.

SCE's anticipated schedule:

  • Dates: Mid-September 2014 to 2015.
  • Hours: Monday - Friday, 7:30 AM - 6:00 PM.*
    *Please be advised these dates and times are subject to change due to unforeseen operational factors or inclement weather.

What to expect:

  • Crews may need to access your property to replace poles.  You will be notified when crews enter the property.
  • During construction, there will be lane closures.  SCE will use a combination of traffic control signs and crew members with flags to ensure vehicle and pedestrian safety.
  • For crews to work safely, it will be necessary to de-energize our power lines for short periods of time.  In these cases, SCE will send notices to affected customers at least 72 hours prior to maintenance outages.
