Description / Significance

Sargent crews have substantially completed construction of a 1.2-mile long underground 115 KV transmission line between two Central Maine Power substations in Lewiston.  The new underground line runs from the new Middle Street Substation along Chapel Street, Main Street, Canal Street, and Lisbon Street to the Lower Lewiston Substation on Strawberry Patch Lane.  The line, which is linked to CMP’s Maine Power Reliability Program (MPRP), is the only 115 KV  transmission line in Maine that is underground.  The owner is Avangrid (formerly Iberdrola USA), which is the parent company of CMP.  The owner’s representative is Burns & McDonnell, a national construction management company with a local office in New Gloucester.
