Entergy Louisiana today began work on the second phase of construction of a multi-phase, $69 million upgrade to the electric transmission infrastructure along the Lapalco Boulevard corridor on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish from Bayou Segnette to Harvey.
Entergy Louisiana, LLC will ring in the New Year in Jefferson Davis Parish with the start of an approximately $100 million technological upgrade to its electric power transmission grid. The project will enhance reliability, increase transmission capacity and help ensure the availability of affordable power now and into the future for the parish. Construction will begin in January 2018.
Construction is underway on a joint effort by Entergy Louisiana and Cleco to construct a new storm-hardened transmission line that will strengthen service reliability for customers across southeast Louisiana.
Entergy officials joined with business and community leaders and elected officials at the Nelson Power Station in Westlake today to “cut the wire” on one of the largest single transmission projects in Entergy’s history.
