Document Description
The project involves the replacement of approximately 2 miles of existing underground 69kV cable within existing right-of-way and construction of up to 15 new manholes along the route to allow for improved access and maintenance of the power line. The alignment extends west beneath Interstate 5 (1-5) from just southeast of the Florin Road/I-5 interchange to Gloria Drive, where it ends at the Gloria-Florin distribution substation approximately 400 feet west of Florin Road. At Havenside Drive, the underground duct bank splits, with one circuit proceeding along Florin Road (to Gloria Drive, as previously discussed) and a second circuit proceeding south on Havenside Drive to the Havenside-Canal distribution substation located on the northside of Haven side Drive, immediately west of the Pocket Canal.
