Pawnee-Daniels Park Transmission Project (Xcel Energy)
**Project Update: 10/7/19**
Construction is underway on the entire 20-mile segment of the Pawnee-Daniels Park project in Aurora and Parker between the new Harvest Mile Substation and the Daniels Park Substation. PSCo/Xcel Energy is in the process of installing temporary wooden structures where the new transmission lines will cross public roads and trails. These guard structures, which are temporary in nature, are designed to add an extra level of protection when PSCo/Xcel strings the new line and installs the transmission cable this fall. The structures will carry the cable over the road and prevent damage or harm should the cable drop or fall during installation.
Helicopter work is now ongoing. The helicopters will be used at times during construction for pulling rope prior to stringing conductor (wire) on the project.
Installation will continue to move south and then west with a crossing of Parker Road (Highway 83) planned for late October/early November. The company is working closely with CDOT on what the traffic plans will look like and that information will be shared as it is available.
Once this work has been completed, PSCo/Xcel will restore those areas that have been disturbed and remove the temporary guard structures as part of this final phase of work.
