Underground Conversion - Santa Ana Canyon/Royal Oak
The undergrounding on Santa Ana Canyon Road, between Lakeview Avenue and Imperial Highway; and the segment on Royal Oak Road, from north of Santa Ana Canyon Road to Nohl Ranch Road, is currently in construction. This project will address major capacity and reliability issues with the existing pole lines currently installed along steep terrain which makes it difficult to maintain pole stability and for field crew access. The undergrounding is currently being coordinated with the affected telecommunication companies for joint trenching. Construction for the Royal Oak phase is planned for completion in Summer 2021. Construction for the Santa Ana Canyon phase is planned to start in Spring 2021 for completion in late 2022.
