We are rebuilding portions of our grid in Detroit as a part of our four-point plan to improve the grid’s resiliency and reliability. Crews were on Trumbell Avenue, in the historic Woodbridge neighborhood, relocating primary cable lines and poles to make room for a new building that is being constructed. This infrastructure was updated with all new wire and taller poles and relocated across the street. These upgrades will continue to bring reliable power to this neighborhood. The remaining infrastructure will also be moved to continue building and supporting the electric needs of the Woodbridge neighborhood in the future.
Investments in modernizing our infrastructure will help to reduce outages and reliably meet the growing energy needs of our customers. We have invested more than $5 billion over the past five years to build the grid of the future, and we are planning to invest more than $9 billion in the coming five years to keep providing safe, reliable energy. Make sure to regularly check out the Wayne County community page to learn more about what is going on in your neighborhood.
