Upgrades to Maui Electric Wailuku Heights Substation to Impact Traffic
By Maui Now Staff
As part of efforts to upgrade and modernize Maui’s electrical system, Maui Electric will be performing work at the Wailuku Heights Substation on West Alu Road throughout the month of November.
Work will take place Mondays to Saturdays, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and will result in possible traffic delays on West Alu Road during this time.
Company officials say electrical service to the area will not be impacted.
The project consists of upgrading electrical equipment, including transformers and electrical lines, which require heavy transport equipment and a crane.
“Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue working to upgrade our island’s aging electrical infrastructure,” said Mat McNeff, manager of engineering at Maui Electric.
“Such improvements are part of our overall efforts to maintain a safe, reliable and resilient electric system for our Maui community,” he said.
