PUBLIC NOTICE Fairfield to Congress Street Substation 115-kV Railroad Transmission Line Rebuild Project – Virtual Open House WHO: The United Illuminating Company WHERE: Virtual at www.UIRailroadTLineUpgrades.com WHEN: January 19, 2023 12:00 noon January 31, 2023, 12:00 noon The United Illuminating Company (UI) is proposing to remove UI’s existing 115-kV lines and infrastructure from the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CT DOT) railroad catenary structures that span the Metro North (MNR) tracks in both Fairfield and Bridgeport. Along approximately 7.3 miles of the MNR tracks, the 115-kV lines will be removed from about 100 catenary structures and rebuilt on single or double circuit monopoles, which will be located within or near the CT DOT-owned railroad corridor. In Fairfield, the new monopoles will be located south of the MNR tracks; in Bridgeport, the new monopoles will be positioned north or south of the tracks, depending on location. The Project also will provide upgraded connections to four UI substations, all located in Bridgeport. These transmission line upgrades will help maintain system reliability, promote climate resiliency, preserve safety within and adjacent to the transmission lines and provide technological enhancements to legacy system equipment. UI has scheduled a Virtual Open House which will be hosted on the Project website www.UIRailroadTLineUpgrades.com, from noon on January 19, 2023, through noon on January 31, 2022. In addition, team members will be available by appointment via a Teams call on January 19, 12:00 pm 1:30 pm and January 24, 7:00 pm 8:30 pm, for those who would like to learn more or ask specific questions about the project. To make an appointment please contact us via the Outreach Hotline at 888-848-3697 or email at info@UIRailroadTLineUpgrades.com. Please join us to learn more about the Project.
