Document Description
The project involves the demolition of the existing Naomi Distribution Station which is currently owned and operated by Burbank Water and Power as a 34.5/4.3 kilovolt (kV) distribution station and will be re-constructed as a new 69/12.47kV station. New underground 69kV and 12.47kV conduits and duct banks (proposed and future) carrying new high voltage power cables and fiber optic cables would be installed from inside the substation to go across both South Naomi Street and West Willow Street in the public right-of-way past the property line. The underground transmission cables would also be installed in public right-of-way in the following roadways: North and South Frederic Street, West Olive Avenue, West Verdugo Avenue, North California Street, and West Alameda Avenue. Construction activities are anticipated to take up to 24 months. Construction of the proposed project includes demolition, trenching, grading and installation of electric utility infrastructure, landscape improvements, and paving.
