Continue to count on slowdowns on highway 89 as PG&E completes undergrounding 8 miles of power lines. The project is in response to its wildfire mitigation efforts. The work began mid-October West of Canyon Dam and continue down to Power Line Rd North of Greenville. You will see One-way traffic controls along the highway as crews trench and install conduit for the underground lines.
Give yourself more time when traveling these routes and expect delays of up to 15 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 6: 30 p.m. Monday to Friday. On nights and weekends, you can expect even longer delays of up to 45 minutes. The project is scheduled for completion in late December, depending on the weather.
PG&E work through Greenville to underground lines is expected to be completed by early next year with work starting in the area back in June. That’s in addition to other projects throughout western Plumas county. When completed, about 45 miles of power lines will be undergrounded.
