The project will replace existing feeders and tie lines originally installed below the channel in 1967, through the
installation of new conduits installed using directional drilling or micro-tunneling. The improvements also include
removal of two riser poles and extending the underwater tie lines inland on the western side of the channel
through the right-of-way where they currently emerge to the intersection of Ray Street and South End Place.
Four new riser poles will be installed at Ray Street/South End Place and Ray Street/Bedell Street to diversify exit
