Vegetation Maintenance – Barlow/Parsons Transmission Line Upgrade


Traverse City, MI – Traverse City Light & Power’s tree contractor, Asplundh Tree Expert Co. will be performing vegetation line clearance work starting on Monday, December 6, 2021 along the railroad corridor from Barlow Street to Airport Access Road in preparation for the transmission line upgrade project planned to begin in April 2022. The work is expected to be completed by Friday, December 31, 2021.

The upgrade project will involve rebuilding 2.71 miles of existing electric transmission line to improve capacity and increase grid reliability. TCL&P will be bringing the right-of-way back to industry standard clearances in order to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the utility lines. This matches up with TCL&P’s goals as a community owned utility to provide affordable and reliable electric service.
