Please be advised FortisAlberta is upgrading power line services in Fort Macleod.
OCTOBER 4TH, 2021 – OCTOBER 8TH
LOCATION: 9TH, 10TH & 11TH STREET, BETWEEN 1ST AND 5TH AVENUE
Crews will be spending the week setting poles and stringing in a new conductor.
To improve the safety and reliability of our electricity distribution service to the Town of Fort Macleod, FortisAlberta will be reconstructing and
upgrading the system on the south side of town between 1st and 5th Avenues and 15th and 8th Streets, throughout September and October.
During this upgrade, you may see us in your area:
» brushing trees and staking in preparation of construction
» blocking alleyways during work hours for equipment and safe work zones (back access to houses allowed but alleys not passable
» with trucks and equipment in alleys and front streets and work zones marked with signs
» ‘No Parking’ zones marked off to salvage poles on front streets
For us to work safely, customers within these areas will experience two power outages. You will be notified by our Customer Care Centre by
phone 72 hours in advance, so it is important that your retail service provider has your current phone contact information.
The below is the planned schedule of activities on specific streets. Actual dates are subject to change based on weather and progress. Schedule
updates will be provided on the Facebook pages of the Town of Fort Macleod and FortisAlberta.
*Note: Additional outages may be required, and will be communicated ahead of time
We appreciate your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause. Please take care approaching our workers and work sites.
