Herschel Street Substation Rebuild Project
The goal of this construction project is to make the community even better by improving our service and reliability to your neighborhood. Start and Completion dates are subject to change and do not include final restoration of the project area. Thank you in advance for your patience!
Estimated Dates & Work Schedule
Anticipated End Date: 2016-07-31
JEA has completed rebuilding and upgrading the Herschel Street substation located at 3751 Herschel Street next to Boone Park in Riverside. This new substation will provide improved electric service reliability to the area.
The electrical equipment we replaced for this substation was installed in 1959 and had reached the end of its service life. JEA determined that the substation needed to be rebuilt and upgraded to comply with current codes and industry standards.
Restoration of Project Area
Upon completion of the substation work, JEA will be replacing the old existing chain link fence with a faux ornamental black fence as well as adding substantial landscaping to improve the aesthetics of the property. Any existing pavement, grass, curb, gutter, driveways or sidewalks affected during construction will be returned to its pre-construction condition.
Below are images of the site after project restoration has been completed.
