Duke Energy crews will begin upgrades on the “Taylorsville Tie,” which begins at the substation near East Taylorsville Baptist Church and proceeds westward.
The first phase of work will begin the week of March 14 along 1st Avenue Drive SE. In the coming weeks, additional crews will be deployed on the project, which is expected to be completed by late fall 2022.
Citizens should expect traffic delays where work is occurring. Duke Energy customers along the work route may experience power outages; however, Duke will notify customers 48 hours before the planned outage so customers can be prepared.
This project is designed to enhance and upgrade Duke’s electric grid that runs through Alexander County with new circuits, increased capacity, and general improvements.
