On January 23, 2024, Hydro Ottawa will be installing two electrical poles that will impact customers located on Alesther Street, Bernard Street, Prince Albert Street and Queen Mary Street.
You will notice increased construction presence throughout the day. A portion of Prince Albert Street will be closed to allow for the crane to set up, however, it will remain open to local traffic. Traffic control and lane reductions will be implemented to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe for residents and staff. Construction activities will take place on the City of Ottawa Road Right-of-Way – a legal right of access for Hydro Ottawa for the purpose of installing and maintaining its electrical distribution system.
A planned power outage is required as a result of this work. All affected customers are contacted by phone, text or email - depending on the communication preferences indicated on their account - and informed by a written notice delivered to their door, if applicable. Further, notifications will be provided if the power outage is to extend beyond the original duration time. In the case of circumstances beyond our control, the outage may be rescheduled.
