Construction Schedule

A large transmission project, such as the Rochester Area Reliability Project, can take several years to build from its initial planning stage to energization. RG&E commenced construction at Station 80 (located in the Town of Henrietta off of Lehigh Station Road) in October 2014 working on bay 4, completing this portion of RARP in April 2017. RG&E recommenced construction in early 2018, with the initial work focused on the underground portion of Circuit 940 in the Town of Gates and the wetland mitigation project off Ballantyne Road in the Town of Chili. Work at Station 255 (located in the Town of Henrietta off of East River Road) and the overhead Circuit 40 (in the Town of Henrietta) began in the fall of 2018. Site preparation related to construction of the overhead transmission lines in the Town of Chili began in February 2019. Transmission line work in the City of Rochester will commence late 2019, and the RARP will be placed into service by late 2020/early 2021.

Keep up to date on the status of the RARP by reviewing the below weekly construction schedule updates, including current locations with associated scopes of work:
