Fort St. John Powerline Construction Monitoring

The Fort St. John Area Reinforcement Project (FSJAR-TF) involved right-of-way land clearing and the installation of a 57 km, 138 kV transmission line from an existing line west of Fort St. John to the new Fox Creek sub-station. This project included crossing of organic farms, 14 streams, and wetlands. This was a multiple phase project with several contactors conducting the work.
