Cancelled: Notice of Construction Noise at Mill Street Substation

Mill Street Substation Construction


The Ministry of Transportation (MOT) has implemented a Spring Road Ban. This has delayed the delivery of the E-House from the original date of 7:00am on Thursday February 8th 2024 to another date in the future that still is to be determined. Nelson Hydro will be working with MOT in the coming weeks to coordinate another delivery date/time. We will update the public when it has been confirmed. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.



The E-House control building for the Mill Street Substation will arrive sometime between the hours of 3:00 am and 5:00 am on Thursday, February 8th. An E-House is a prefabricated building designed to control the electric operations of the substation and is comparable in size to a shipping container. Due to the Ministry of Transportation requirements for a load this size, travel on highways can only occur between the hours of 1:00 am and 4:00 am. Nelson Hydro expects the E-House to be delivered around 4:00 am with most of the noise possibly occurring as the building is offloaded into the substation around 7:00 am. With the uncertainty of weather, there is a possibility of delivery delay. Nelson Hydro will attempt to notify residents of any revision to the date and/or time. Thank- you for your patience. Inquiries regarding the project may be directed to Nelson Hydro’s Project and Customer Service Manager at 250-352-8287.
