ComEd Work Along State Street

ComEd is in the process of running a new transmission line from south of Main Campus to Chicago’s Loop. This new line will be installed in the west lane of northbound traffic on State Street.

Work will begin in early January 2013 with a new vault installed just north of 31st and State streets. The vault will be installed in both the traffic lane and the median. This work is anticipated to take six weeks. After the completion of the vault, the contractors will be digging a trench and installing conduit from the new vault south through campus. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of March. Upon completion of the trenching work, State Street will be fully restored by ComEd.
