Hydro One announced plans to invest approximately $40 million in significant infrastructure upgrades to improve service reliability and support future economic growth in the Sault Ste. Marie region.

Over the next four years, Hydro One plans to improve its high-voltage electricity transmission service and ensure public safety in the Sault Ste. Marie area by replacing approximately 70 kilometres of transmission line and wood poles, upgrading two transmission stations and conducting tree trimming along nearly 400 kilometres of Hydro One corridors.

“Through the replacement of aging infrastructure in the region and across the province, Hydro One will be able to build a stronger, safer and more reliable electricity system for Ontario now and into the future,” said Mark Poweska, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hydro One.

These projects are expected to include:

  • Upgrading the Sault#3 transmission line, which was put in service in 1929 and spans from Sault Ste. Marie to the Montreal River Area.
  • Upgrading the D.A. Watson and Echo River Transmission Stations.
  • Tree trimming along 400 kilometers of Hydro One corridors.
