At City Hall on November 20th – 7pm, Puget Sound Energy are holding a public hearing on the new transmission lines that will stretch between the Lake Hills and Phantom Lake substations. If approved, this new line will be installed along NE 8th St and 148th Av, with future plans to also run down SE16th St.
The line’s purpose is to make our electricity service more reliable – a topical issue for us during this stormy season – and to increase capacity.
Drop in, get informed and have your say.
Proposal to construct a new, 115kB transmission line to connect the existing Lake Hills Substation with the Phantom Lake Substation. The route and new poles will be in the rights-of-way along SE 16th Street, 148th Avenue SE and NE and NE 8th Street. Work will also include upgrades to the existing substations and required mitigation for tree removal and construction within a floodplain and wetlands along the route.
