BIRD ROAD SUBSTATION
Mansfield Municipal Electric Department is pleased to announce that after 10 years of planning and eight months of construction, the Bird Road substation in East Mansfield was placed into service on Sunday, September 16. This facility will serve the power needs of Mansfield for the next 25 years and will also dramatically increase electric system reliability.
The total cost of the project will be approximately $6.7 million once all costs are tallied. MMED was able to avoid borrowing money, along with its associated interest charges, and paid for the cost of the substation from available funds.
MMED’s staff wishes to thank all employees, Light Commission members and Town Boards who contributed to seeing this project through to its completion.
If you have not seen the completed facility, we encourage you to drive by. We hope you will appreciate the work that has gone into creating an aesthetically pleasing perimeter to the station.
