GRDA asks public to use extra caution near area
As it expands an electric substation in Cleveland, the Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) is asking for the public’s cooperation.
Recently, GRDA began a $1.5 million construction project at its Cleveland Interconnect, located at the southwest intersection of Caddo Street and “D” Avenue. The work includes an expansion of the substation’s footprint as well as upgrades to substation components.
The presence of high-voltage power lines and the added presence of construction activity has prompted GRDA to remind the public to use extra caution, obey all signage and fencing in place and stay clear of the construction area
“We appreciate the public’s ongoing cooperation as this work progresses over the next several months,” said GRDA Corporate Spokesperson Justin Alberty. “Please obey the safety barriers and signage in place so that crews can complete this work as promptly and safely as possible.”
Improved system reliability and modern design standards are the primary goals of the project. GRDA anticipates the work will be completed in June 2022.
GRDA is Oklahoma’s largest public power electric utility; fully funded by revenues from electric and water sales instead of taxes. Each day, GRDA strives to be an “Oklahoma agency of excellence” by focusing on the 5 E’s: electricity, economic development, environmental stewardship, employees, and efficiency.
