Robinson Street 230 kV Underground Transmission Line

Project Overview

To provide the most dependable service possible and meet growth demands in Central Florida, OUC The —Reliable One is installing a new underground electric transmission line along Robinson Street from North Fern Creek Avenue to North Crystal Lake Drive/Maguire Boulevard. This work includes excavation to install an underground duct bank stretching 0.96 miles. No existing overhead lines will be removed or relocated.

OUC is working in coordination with the Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) Robinson Street Resurfacing, Restoration and Rehabilitation (RRR) project from Mills Avenue to Maguire Boulevard/Crystal Lake Drive and the City of Orlando's Robinson Street Sanitary Sewer Improvements project. OUC's 230 kV transmission project will be completed ahead of FDOT's RRR project.

Together, these projects will transform Robinson Street. Below, courtesy of FDOT, are streetscape renderings of the future Robinson Street after all roadway, streetscape, and utilities improvements are completed.
