Work underway to storm harden causeway between Lameque / Shippagan

2017-12-01


Lameque, N.B. – NB Power is undertaking work on the Lameque causeway to strengthen its transmission system from the community to Shippagan.

There are footings being constructed for 17 steel power poles which will be placed on the causeway.

The move comes following a severe thunder storm in May which resulted in winds which some meteorologists estimated to be 190 kilometres an hour. The winds broke 30 poles in the Acadian Peninsula.

The work, including the installation of new steel poles, wire, and LED lighting is expected to be completed around Dec. 29th. The poles will be delivered the week of December 11, 2017.

“We are very pleased to be investing in this important infrastructure,” said NB President and CEO Gaëtan Thomas. “In addition to the work being done in Lameque, we are strengthening infrastructure in 11 communities in the province, and our multi-year transmission line rebuild program includes $20 to $27 million annually in reliability improvements.”


On Nov. 30, NB Power crews were working on the last of the caissons when they realized that for security reasons, they had to block the remaining lane on the causeway which was open. While the work took about 30 minutes with the lane closed, clearing the backed-up traffic took about 90 minutes. NB Power regrets the inconvenience caused to motorists. Emergency vehicles were not impeded.
