ROSENBERG (Covering Fort Bend News) – Beginning in January 2019, CenterPoint Energy will begin to replace existing transmission infrastructure in portions of Rosenberg, running from North to South near and along TX-36.
The project aims to modernize and build a stronger electric system, converting wood poles to concrete and steel, which will better serve the current and future customer load, as well as provide better resiliency against weather-related damage.
Expected to last approximately three months, the project will require cranes and heavy equipment that may cause intermittent traffic disruptions along TX-36 and a portion of the alleyways along that location. CenterPoint Energy will notify businesses and residences who may experience traffic or targeted, scheduled outages in advance. This project is not expected to cause any widespread outages.
The project will cover approximately three miles within the city limits of Rosenberg and result in greater grid integrity, more resilient transmission poles, and fewer power outages as the City population grows.
