SAN ANTONIO – To improve the safety of aging transmission lines, CPS Energy will implement new electric wires in the southeast area of San Antonio near US Highway 181 and Loop 410.

The Braunig to Highland Hills project will start on Sunday, March 12, and go through Wednesday, March 15.

CPS warns drivers to expect lane closures from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at South US Highway 181 westbound, just west of the CPS Energy Calaveras Power station road and eastbound just west of Laguna Road, according to a news release.

The S.E. Loop 410 project involves installation and removal of overhead conductors that cross over the highway.

The work will take place from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 12

CPS Energy crews will be working on both sides of the highway and access roads. Law enforcement will direct traffic as needed.

No power outages are anticipated with either project, and traffic control will be provided for both.

If possible, drivers are asked to find alternative routes and avoid the areas during the project dates.

More information concerning the project can be found online.
