Power Line Upgrade to Impact Traffic Flow in Santee

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Motorists will have to be cautious along Magnolia Avenue and Mast Boulevard for the next several months because of major construction projects by San Diego Gas & Electric.

On Dec. 10, crews began installation of a new circuit that will require 900 feet of trenching between on Mast Boulevard between Magnolia Avenue and Cuyamaca Street. The project will be finished in early April.

The new circuit is needed to accommodate the expansion of the Las Colinas Women's Detention Facility  and other growth in the Santee area.

Later this year, perhaps in late spring, SDG&E crews will be replacing wood and steel poles with galvanized steel and concrete poles and overhead conductors along Magnolia Avenue.

The pole replacement is part of a major transmission line upgrade spanning 11 miles that link the utility’s three electrical substations at Sycamore Canyon, Carlton Hills and Mast Boulevard near Magnolia Avenue.

The project is expected to take 10 months to complete and will require lane closures and caution cones to be placed along Magnolia Avenue and Mast Boulevard. No road closures are expected.
