Question: Hi, Joe, Any idea what all the construction work on Maple Ridge Dr. is all about? - Jimmy
Hi, Jimmy, If you recall, I wrote an article last year on power outages in Rockwood. As it turns out, it looks like hydro personnel must be reading our newsletter. The article mentioned the aging of the underground cables in our area as a cause for outages. This construction is to replace the main power cables and distribution transformers that provide power to our houses. This spring the following streets are being done: Branchwood Park, Saltdene Terrace, Maple Ridge Dr. (Ponytrail to Fieldgate Dr.) and Fieldgate Dr. (Maple Ridge to Rathburn). Please remember that there will be a significant power outage on the day they transfer from the old cables and transformers to the new ones. There is a plan to do the remaining of Rockwood as the cables approach the end of their lifetime.
