Cooper Landing residents can expect to see significant construction activity soon as Chugach is rebuilding part of the distribution line that feeds into the community. The Daves Creek Feeder 352 originates out of the Daves Creek Substation, between milepost markers 40 and 41 of the Sterling Highway, terminating at the Russian River ferry crossing.
This project will reconstruct approximately four miles of the line from the substation to Kenai Lake. It will increase capacity and reliability by adding poles and replacing conductors and cross arms on the feeder. The construction has been awarded to Alaska Line Builders and will begin after freeze-up. The construction will be done with the line energized, minimizing disruptions to members. Construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year.
Chugach has other projects scheduled for the Cooper Landing/Moose Pass area. A public meeting discussing the details of these projects is scheduled for the Cooper Landing Community Club on Nov. 4, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
