The Rochelle Municipal Utilities 5kv conversion underground electrical project is underway. Residents have likely noticed our contractor, Utility Dynamics with equipment and construction in utility easements throughout back yards over the past several weeks and work will continue as weather permits in the coming months.
The 5kv project is a five-phase project with one phase slated to be completed each year, as funding permits. Phase 1 is underway now in the North and West sections of Rochelle including the following streets:
-North 14th Street
-Tilton Park Drive
-1000-1100 blocks of North 7th Street
Residents are asked to leave any flag markers in their yard until work is completed. Missing flags will result in additional location services and an increase in project time and cost. Please keep children and animals away from any construction equipment.
