    The University Miami advises the UM community that Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) contract crews will begin upgrading an existing transmission line in Coral Gables, which will enhance the reliability of the area’s  electric grid, on Monday, October 2.

    This project will primarily take place along Ponce de Leon Boulevard from S.W. 68 Street and Red Road, traveling northeast to Douglas and Bird roads. The upgraded poles will help speed power restoration efforts after severe weather conditions, including hurricanes.

    The majority of the work will take place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday. During times of construction, northbound traffic on Ponce de Leon Boulevard will shift to one of the southbound lanes. Northbound and southbound traffic will be able to move along the roadway. During the work, flagmen and law enforcement personnel will redirect traffic; all motorists are urged to use caution when traveling near the area and be alert for workers.

    The company pledges to work safely and respectfully in the community, as well as make reasonable efforts to minimize construction-related noise and any other inconveniences. FPL does not anticipate any power interruptions associated with this project, which is scheduled to be completed by the first quarter of 2018.
