The first construction project, taking place between 86th St – 100th Ave, south to 98th Ave, where underground ducting will be installed in the two block section along the front area of Robert Ogilvie Elementary School.
The instillation will allow for the overhead power lines to eventually be moved underground at this same location.
The construction process will require the closure of the sidewalk in front of the school, as well as the northbound curb lane of 86th St., between 98th Ave and 100th Ave.
The project is said to be complete by late August, prior to the start of the upcoming school year.
The second construction project will be taking place between 86th St. and 100th Ave, north of 109th Ave.

Like the first project, the second also expects to finish by late August.
