ComEd to improve system reliability in La Grange

La Grange, IL

ComEd will undertake its first major electrical system reliability improvement project within La Grange since the severe weather and corresponding power outage events this past July.

ComEd will replace about 1,115 feet of underground cable on Edgewood Avenue between Birks Court and 51st Street beginning Monday.

The cable replacement project is one of several upgrades planned for this circuit, which serves a large geographic area generally bounded by Hillgrove Avenue to the north, Plainfield Road to the south, Waiola Avenue to the east and Howard Avenue in Western Springs to the west.

The replacement cable project and future circuit upgrades will benefit about 366 customers in La Grange.

The work will take place within the public right-of-way. Access to all driveways and roadways will be available during construction.

ComEd has indicated that residents should not experience any outages while this work is being performed. The work is expected to take about one week to complete.
