To improve and ensure safe and reliable electric service in Sacramento County, SMUD will replace 5 Transmission Poles 1639, 1651, 1656, 1661 and 1692. The 5 poles are located along Roseville Road, in the in the North Highlands neighborhood in Sacramento, and are along the Union Pacific Railroads.. The new poles will be of sufficient strength to support existing conductor. SMUD proposes to replace the wood poles with a combination of wood and steel poles. The height of the new poles ranges from 55 to 90 feet tall. The new poles will be placed within 10 feet of the existing pole. Soil that is removed from the new hole will be placed back into the old hole or will be taken off site and disposed of appropriately. Construction is scheduled for November 6 through 9, 2023 or soon thereafter and will take approximately 3 days.
All project access will be from Roseville Rd. Traffic and pedestrian control will follow all standard safety measures for construction and will be implemented in consultation with the Sacramento County Public Works and Transportation Services Department, if necessary.
