Recently Completed Underground Projects
This project extends on Magnolia Ave from Crescent Ave to Ball Rd, and on Lincoln Ave from Magnolia Ave to Brookhurst St. The project includes undergrounding the electrical transmission (69 kV), distribution (12 kV), and communication facilities on the existing utility poles as well as installing new street lights. This project is the first to utilize the design-build methodology for an undergrounding project.
This project undergrounded 2.3 circuit miles of overhead electrical lines on Brookhurst from Katella Ave to Orange Ave. The project was successfully coordinated with Southern California Edison for their portion of the undergrounding. The project was also coordinated with Public Works to accommodate the street widening on Brookhurst between Katella Ave and Ball Rd by removing the utility poles.
This project extends on West St from Lincoln Ave to La Palma, and on Westmont from West St to Loara St. The project includes undergrounding approximately 1.5 circuit miles of 12kV distribution circuits and communication facilities. This project was closely coordinated with Anaheim High School to minimize construction impact to the school schedule. The project’s construction also involves coordination with Community Services Department to ensure preservation of various historical monuments.
Undergrounding on Euclid Street from south City limit to Broadway improved electric service reliability for the area customers and enhance roadway visibility with new LED street light system. Approximately 1.3 miles of distribution (12kV) and telecommunication facilities was undergrounded, which completes undergrounding of all City-owned overhead lines on Euclid Street from south city limit to north city limit. The project was closely coordinated with Anaheim’s Public Works Department and the City of Garden Grove for final street paving.
This project extends on Lincoln Avenue from West of 57 Freeway to Rio Vista Street; and on Rio Vista Street from Lincoln Avenue to Frontera Street; and on Frontera Street to La Palma Avenue. The project includes undergrounding approximately 1.8 circuit miles of 12kV distribution & 69 kV transmission circuits and communication facilities. This project was closely coordinated with Rio Vista Elementary School to minimize construction impact to the school schedule. The project’s construction also involved coordination with the California Department of Transportation as electrical facilities were removed crossing over the SR-57 & SR-91 freeways.
This reliability improvement project undergrounded approximately 1.8 circuit miles of overhead electrical and telecommunication lines along Santa Ana Canyon Road, between Lakeview Avenue and Imperial Highway, and along Royal Oak Road from Santa Ana Canyon Road to Nohl Ranch Road. The undergrounding was closely coordinated with residents and Crescent Elementary School’s schedule to minimize impacts during student drop off and pick up times. In addition, the project was also coordinated with affected telecommunication companies, and the Public Works Department for improvements to the existing median island and slope conditions along Santa Ana Canyon Road.
