Coleman System Upgrade

We are upgrading electricity distribution services in Coleman, AB.  

To improve the reliability of our electrical distribution system in the Community of Coleman, FortisAlberta will soon begin stage two of phase one of reconstruction and upgrades to the existing infrastructure.

Stage one of this project was completed in 2023.

 Construction will be most visible in the central area of the community.

We would like to thank residents for their patience as our crews complete this system upgrade and establishing a more reliable and resilient electrical distribution system in the Coleman community.

  • Leading up to construction, survey markings and staking for proposed alignments may be visible.
  • Staked structure locations are not final and may be subject to change as the project continues to be refined.
  • Alleys blocked off during work hours for equipment and safe work zones
  • Partial road closures on select street fronts for equipment and safe work zones
  • Signs placed in work areas identifying slip, trip, and walking hazards
  • Signs on streets marking off ‘No Parking’ zone for crews to salvage poles on front streets
