The public is invited to join Pasadena Water and Power (“PWP”) for a Raymond Undergrounding Project meeting on Wednesday, May 10, 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Robinson Park Recreation Center, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave.
By News Desk
As part of this project, PWP will move overhead utility wires underground on Raymond Ave. between Maple St. and the north city border of Montana St.
Placing overhead utility lines below city streets, or “undergrounding,” helps beautify Pasadena, reduce the number of outages, enhance public safety, and protect our urban forest. Beautification and reliability have been at the forefront of a multi-year Capital Improvement Program which began in 1968 with the Underground Utility District Program. Under this initiative, overhead utility systems, including electric cable and telephone communication lines, are relocated underground.
Pasadena Water and Power is currently working on engineering designs for Mountain St. (between Lake Ave. and Hill Ave.) and Raymond Ave. (Maple St. to north City limits) undergrounding projects. Construction is expected to begin in the 2025 fiscal year. At the upcoming meeting, engineering staff will provide an overview of the Raymond Ave. project and will be available to answer questions.
Spanish translation is planned for the meeting. For accessibility information, or to request an accommodation, please contact (626) 744-7311 or CSC@cityofpasadena.net. Providing at least 72 hours advance notice will help ensure availability. To learn more about PWP’s on-going undergrounding project, visit PWPweb.com/Underground.
