Transmission lines are being rebuilt in southeast and southwest San Antonio to improve electric reliability

October 14, 2022 (SAN ANTONIO) – CPS Energy is working to improve the quality and safety of two aging transmission lines, which will help ensure electric reliability in two areas of southeast and southwest San Antonio.

The first project,  Cagnon to Shepherd and Cagnon to Howard, involves completely removing and rebuilding the transmission lines and adding poles and power lines. The work will take place over the next two Sundays, October 16 and October 23, 2022. For safety precautions, intermittent lane closures will be needed at the Highway 90 intersection at Cagnon Road.
