Puget Sound Energy transmission line project
Sammamish – Juanita 115 kV transmission line
2016 project updates
- PSE is currently working on the project design for the preferred final route. The preferred final route was developed in collaboration with the stakeholder advisory group and input from the community and meeting materials listed below.
- We anticipate submitting permit applications in 2016 and begin construction of the transmission line in 2017.
- View some typical 115 kV transmission lines and poles.
Customer power usage is straining the electric system serving Redmond and Kirkland, which reduces PSE's ability to reliably serve power to area residents and businesses. To increase electric system capacity and improve reliability for customers, PSE plans to construct approximately 4.5 miles of 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line from the Sammamish substation to just south of the existing Juanita substation to interconnect with an existing transmission line that crosses over Northeast 124th Street.

Committed to keeping you informed
PSE will continue to provide updates to the community. We will notify residents and businesses near the project area when construction will occur. We aim to complete the work with as little disruption as possible.
