Blasting to Begin on Transmission Line Project

Published on April 24, 2013 at 03:07PM

Construction on the 169 mile transmission line from Sigurd in Sevier County to Red Butte in Washington County is underway. EC Source Services, the contractor for the project, will begin blasting operations this summer. The blasting will take place just west of Sigurd and move southwest through Sevier County along the I-70 corridor. Blasting will occur periodically between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm through out the year. Warning signs will be visible a thousand feet away from the blasting zone and sirens will be heard to alert those who are around the area prior to the blast.
