Underground cable replacement
The underground cables along the National Mall, the Smithsonian and in front of the White House were
identified for replacement due to aged and deteriorating condition causing numerous streetlight outages
and posing a safety and security risk to pedestrians, motorists and property. Because the project would
require professional community relations, work area control and outage coordination, ULCS, a contractor
of choice (CoC) for more than 10 years, was chosen to help the long-term client replace the underground
cables feeding the streetlights and other premises in the high-profile and high-traffic area.

115kv line rebuild
The 115kV Line is a critical source to the 115kV system in southeast Louisiana. In response to multiple
unplanned outages in area, the client inspected the line and determined mitigation was necessary because
of hurricane damage over many years. The line rebuild was designed to operate at 115kV but insulated at
230kV for operations at higher voltage to address future load growth and reliability needs. The line
traversed the wetlands at Jean Laffite National Wildlife Refuge and private properties, making the
project especially unique and environmentally sensitive.
