Oakley Underground Transmission Line Relocation
The trench or tunnel that houses the underground transmission line was installed in the 1940s. Previous efforts were unsuccessful for repairing the transmission line in place. As a result, we will relocate a 0.3-mile (1,700 feet) section of the new transmission line in another area under Madison Road to make the repairs. The transmission line is a vital component of our electric system in Greater Cincinnati.
This work will involve excavation under Madison Road to install the new section of transmission line. The repaired transmission line will be installed in protective plastic sleeves, which are then fully encased in steel-reinforced concrete.
