Road Construction

Loveland Water and Power (LWP) will rebuild and convert a 2 mile section of the Big Thompson Canyon to a new 12.47 kV voltage. The construction work will begin at U. S. Hwy 34/CO Rd 43 (Mile Marker 75.5) and will end at Hwy 34/Waltonia Road (Mile Marker 73.5).

The rebuild and voltage conversion will improve system reliability and infrastructure hardiness for canyon customers. No planned power outages are needed for this work.
