DTE Energy is continuing its pre-construction work on its electric grid improvement program. This project is part of a larger investment to deliver more reliable service to customers throughout Southeast Michigan.
Typically, DTE Energy spends $600 million per year to maintain and upgrade the electric system. This year, we will spend an additional $50 million to on upgrades like this one that will help us locate and restore power outages more quickly.
The improvements will include replacing pole and pole top equipment, installing higher quality power lines, conducting additional tree trimming and doing some underground work.
The work will take place at several locations throughout Michigan including: Detroit, Grosse Pointe Park, Chesterfield Township, Mount Clemens and New Baltimore. Previous areas included Detroit, Redford and Royal Oak.
Customers will begin to see DTE Energy crews working in the following areas:
- Detroit: Crews will be working in the area of Mack and Warren and Cadieux and Radnor; in the area between I-94 and Warren and Dickerson and Manistique; and in the area between I-94 and Warren and Drexel and Beaconsfield.
- Grosse Pointe Park: Crews will be working in the area south of Kercheval between Manistique Street and Berkshire Road
- Chesterfield Township/Mount Clemens/New Baltimore: Crews will be working in the area around 23 Mile Road from the Salt River Golf Course to Gratiot.
