Bellville-Lexington Improvements Project

We’re working to upgrade the electric grid in your area. Below you’ll find additional details about what’s planned in your community. Please visit this page for regular project updates and for answers to frequently asked questions.


This is a multi-phase project that will take place over the next few years. Our work includes building a new substation and adding new equipment, like poles and wire.

This work will help meet existing electric needs, provide more reliable service and increase capacity to support future economic growth in your community.

We’re committed to keeping you informed throughout the duration of this project. We’ll work to notify you directly on what to expect if any of the planned work will impact you directly.

Work will take place in both the Bellville and Lexington areas. The new substation will be located on Middle Bellville Road between Orchard Park Road and Vanderbilt Road. Specific details on the project are listed below.
