Rebuilding, upgrading and safeguarding our energy grid is central to PGE’s commitment to deliver reliable, affordable and safe power to homes and businesses across our service area. This construction project is one of many underway to modernize our grid and create a platform for a clean energy future.
The construction of the new Marquam substation, along with its underground feeder and distribution lines, is necessary to ensure the downtown corridor and surrounding neighborhoods receive uninterrupted service.
This project is slated for completion in April 2019. It will include a full surface restoration of the sidewalks and streets affected by our construction work.
As much as possible, work hours along Naito Parkway and First Avenue will be limited to Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Weekend hours may be needed, however, in which case we will comply with the City of Portland’s permitting requirements.
