AEP Texas reschedules final phase of transmission line rebuild project in San Angelo;
Work now scheduled to begin Friday Oct. 26 and will entail some traffic disruptions

SAN ANGELO, Texas, Oct. 26, 2018 – AEP Texas has rescheduled activities to upgrade a 69-kilovolt electric transmission line from the College Hills area to the Grape Creek area in San Angelo.  Work originally scheduled to begin Oct. 18 was postponed due to weather.  The work is now scheduled to begin Friday, Oct. 26, weather permitting, and is likely to entail some traffic disruptions in the Sunset Drive, Sherwood Way, the entrance to West Houston Harte Expressway and Houston Harte Frontage Road North.

On Friday and Saturday, AEP Texas plans to begin transferring the old conductor, removing one shield wire, moving from span to span one crossing at a time.  Crews will begin at Sherwood and Sunset streets.  They anticipate stopping traffic for a maximum of five minutes that day at that location.  If possible, crews also will work at the 306 crossing on Friday, and they anticipate stopping traffic there for a maximum of five minutes that day.

From November 2-7, crews will remove three conductors and one shield wire, and install new conductor and a fiber line.  AEP Texas does not anticipate stopping traffic during these activities; however, the work could slow traffic at times.  This work will occur from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the weekdays and from 8 a.m. until to 6 p.m. on weekends.

AEP Texas’ contractor, North Houston Pole Line, will coordinate with the Texas Department of Transportation on several road closures while the work is being completed:

  • The entrance to Stripes and Academy stores, off of Sunset Drive, and the entrance to Office Depot, off of Sherwood Way, will be closed for approximately one week beginning Friday, Oct. 26.
  • The inside lanes of West Houston Harte Expressway and Houston Harte Frontage Road North will be closed intermittently until the work is complete. The turn lanes on Sherwood Way at Sunset Drive also will be closed intermittently during this time. Traffic delays will be minimal.

AEP Texas serves nearly one million electric meters in the deregulated Texas marketplace. As an energy delivery (wires) company, AEP Texas delivers electricity safely and reliably to homes, businesses and industry across its nearly 100,000 square mile service territory in south and west Texas. AEP Texas also builds new power lines, restores service following outages and reads the meters via advanced meter technology for retail electric providers (REPs) throughout its service territory. The company also connects or disconnects service upon the orders of the REPs.
