Contra Costa to Moraga Reconductoring Project

The Contra Costa to Moraga Reconductoring Project, sponsored by PG&E, involves replacing conductors on the existing 27-mile, 230-kV Contra Costa-Moraga line in Contra Costa County, CA. The project will maintain service reliability and meet increasing electric load demands in the region. As part of the project, PG&E will modify 53 towers by adding 16-foot-tall cage extensions to the existing towers, reinforcing foundations to eight towers, adding additional steel reinforcements to 37 towers, and installing or replacing switches on three towers. The project has an estimated cost of $41.1m with an in-service date of summer 2016.
