ComEd System Improvements

Starting in June 2015 and going thru November 2015, ComEd, and its sub-contractor Intren (also known as Intren), will be replacing nearly 4 miles of underground electric cable (in right of ways, rear and/or side yards) on Circle, Downing, Edgebrook, Edgewater, Freeport, Hawthorne, Ironwood, Ivy, Juniper, Kingston, Lakeview, Langton, Lockwood, Manor, Oxford, Royce, Strathmore, Sterling and Winston.  They will also be in the areas of  Meadowlark Road, Red Wing Court, Westwind Townhomes Unit 8 & 9( between Tamarack and Hearthside), Indian Lake Estates and West Point Estates between Cardinal Drive and Hillandale and Raven.
The work is part of ComEd’s annual system reliability improvements. The majority of the work will be completed by Intren, a sub-contractor to ComEd To minimize disturbance and the scope of restorations, horizontal directional drilling, a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables, will be used to replace the underground cable.

Impact on Community
Only occasional excavations will be required to complete the work. Minimal, if any, electrical service disruptions are expected in completing the work. Both ComEd and Intren personnel will be working in rear yard and/or side yard easements to complete their various tasks.

Impact on Individuals
Intren will place a door hanger notifying affected property owners in the work area. Both Intren and ComEd workers will be wearing or carrying identification. Both ComEd and Intren vehicles should be also be clearly marked. No workers should ask you for access to the interior of your residence to complete the work, as it is not necessary. Areas disturbed by the work will be restored with top soil and seed blanket as weather permits.
