Pryor Junction - Pryor CityTransmission Line Rebuild Project


Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) representatives plan to invest approximately $7 million to upgrade the electric transmission system in Mayes County. Crews plan to begin construction in early 2023 and conclude in spring 2023.

This project involves rebuilding about 5 miles of power line with steel single-pole structures to increase electric reliability for customers, reduce maintenance frequency and strengthen the line against weather and other environmental impacts.

Project Updates

Fall 2021: PSO crews and contractors plan to perform surveying work in early 2022 within the utility's right-of-way along and adjacent to the line route. Some of the survey work may require crews to place stakes and ribbon within the company's easement* on your property. Crews plan to use existing streets and pathways wherever possible to access the easement area. PSO takes responsibility should any damage result from the surveying work.

* Company representatives plan to rebuild the power line in the existing right-of-way, which may require acquiring new or updating existing property easements. Easements are defined land rights that property owners grant the utility to allow for the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the power line.
