Discovery Road Power Undergrounding Project
PUD crews and contractors are beginning work on undergrounding overhead power and relocating existing underground power lines in conjunction with the City of Port Townsend’s Discovery Road Project. Work is expected to continue through July.
The City’s Discovery Road Project provides safer access for pedestrians and improved roadway lighting.
Crews will remove overhead lines at the intersection of 14th Street and Cliff Street and run them underground to connect to existing infrastructure.
Existing underground lines along Discovery Road, that supply Katherine St. residents, will be rerouted to allow access for future maintenance needs.
Undergrounding utility work requires a combination of open trench and boring operations, and as this work is taking place in residential areas and pedestrian corridors, the PUD urges residents to use caution around work sites.
