Oncor is working on upgrading an existing overhead distribution line near Grapevine Lake on Corp of Engineers property (see map). The line currently serves more than 2,000 customers, and this work is necessary to improve reliability and increase capacity for the Flower Mound area.
To allow personnel and equipment to access the line, Oncor will need to clear some overgrown vegetation in the area, within a 30-foot right of way. Oncor will work to minimize the impact to the surrounding natural area as much as possible. Depending on weather, schedules, and resources, vegetation work could begin the week of Aug. 23. Construction work - which will involve the full replacement of multiple existing poles, the installation of new lines, and the removal of existing infrastructure - will follow. The project will not impact the electric service to customer homes or offices.
