Ninemile West Bank Transmission Project
Upgrades are complete to the transmission line on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish. Crews have completed all three phases of the project.
The West Bank of Jefferson Parish is prepared for continued economic growth and enhanced weather readiness with the completion of a three-phase technological upgrade to its electric power transmission system.
The project enhances reliability, increases transmission capacity and helps ensure the availability of affordable power now and into the future.
The maps below outline the areas affected by the projects. The colored lines indicate the path along which the existing electric transmission lines will be upgraded.
Electric Power Transmission System Upgrade Facts
