FPL has been hard at work on pole replacement in Palmetto Bay in 2019. I am updating prior reports on this work, including a recent post of February 10, 2019, Report: The FPL Power Pole delivery trucks started rolling into the neighborhood at 8:20 on a quiet Sunday morning.
This work continues in the area of the FPL "easement" area that runs east to west from Old Cutler Road to Southwest 74 Avenue between Southwest 148 Street and Southwest 146 Terrace in Palmetto Bay.
FPL has advised that this work is expected to be completed by May 2019.
FPL to Conduct Pole Repairs, Upgrades in Palmetto Bay:
Please see notice below for locations, dates and times from FPL's Area Project Manager:
We understand how much you depend on reliable energy and we’re continuously working to make it better. In fact, we’re working on a project in your area that will help improve the reliability of the energy grid in good weather and bad.
This project will require transmission power line pole replacements and upgrades along the existing easement to enhance reliability in Miami-Dade County. The project begins along the easement east to west from Old Cutler Road to Southwest 74 Avenue between Southwest 148 Street and Southwest 146 Terrace in Palmetto Bay. Work is scheduled to begin this month and is expected to be completed by May 2019.
In order to perform the pole replacement and upgrade work, bucket trucks and large cranes will be necessary to access the power line pole structures. The majority of the work will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We will do everything possible to keep any power interruptions to a minimum while this work progresses. Should an outage of 15 minutes or more become necessary to complete the work, we’ll notify you at least five days in advance and provide details at that time.
We pledge to work safely and respectfully in your community, as well as make reasonable efforts to minimize construction-related noise and any other inconveniences to you or your neighbors. We plan to make interim repairs to restore grounds to ensure the safety of the area after the work is completed. We will make permanent repairs once construction is complete.
Should you have any questions concerning this project, please call 1-800-693-3267, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please refer to Cutler-Galloway T19301 Pole Replacement & Upgrade project.
