April 2022 Update
Grading is nearly complete where the new facility and substation will be located. M.U.D. has also begun installing a portion of gas pipeline at the site ahead of construction.
In mid- to late-April you will notice some additional activity on the northwest corner of the M.U.D. property, near the intersection of 120th and Military. OPPD’s vendor, Zachry, will be using this area for temporary offices, storage of equipment, materials and supplies. Entrances to this area will be off 120th Street, so you may see additional traffic entering and exiting the property at this location. After construction, the area will be restored to its original condition.
Over the next couple months and into the summer, Zachry will begin work on the associated substation and will begin construction on the natural gas plant. In late summer to early fall, transmission lines will be constructed to connect the new plant and substation to the power grid.
