Canadian Niagara Power Inc. Announces Rebuild of the International Power Line

Friday, October 9, 2015

In late 2014, Canadian Niagara Power Inc. (“CNPI”) announced plans for the removal and replacement of the International Power Line (“IPL”) located to the north and parallel to the Peace Bridge.  The work is being done in three stages: Stage 1, involved the removal of the cables from the two existing steel towers; Stage 2, resulted in the dismantling and removal of the two steel towers located on Queen Street in Fort Erie, Ontario and the Buffalo High Tower, in Buffalo, NY; and Stage 3, will see CNPI undertake the rebuilding of the line. 
Stages 1 and 2 of the project were completed in late 2014. 
Stage 3 will begin on Tuesday, October 13, 2015.  This stage involves the placement of new poles, stringing of cables, and re-energizing the line between the two transmission systems. During the drilling phase (October and November), residents and businesses in the vicinity of the project site may hear drilling noises.  The noise emissions from the equipment are within industry levels.  Stage 3 of the project is estimated to take approximately three (3) months to complete with minimal impact to traffic flow in the vicinity of the new towers
