The triplex under construction on North Main Street in Mount Angel James Day

Portland General Electric is planning to rebuild its substation at the corner of Silverton’s McClaine Street and South James.

The work will require the use of an adjacent vacant lot at C Street and James for a temporary substation. PGE has received city approval for the project, which company officials say is scheduled to start later this month.

Brianne Hyder, a communications manager with PGE, said the work will require six to eight months. Once the substation on its current site is rebuilt the temporary one and the surrounding fencing will be removed.

Hyder said that she doesn’t anticipate any road closures but said that traffic control measures likely will be used during major equipment deliveries.

In Mount Angel development news:

• Stafford Land of Lake Oswego has submitted a subdivision application for 20 acres between West Church Street and West Marquam St. However, city staff has ruled the Wachter Meadows application incomplete because it did not include a traffic study or geotechnical data. Colby Kemp, assistant to the city manager, said that it is likely the project will not be reviewed by the Planning Commission until its July meeting.

• Quality Plus Interiors of Salem is building a commercial triplex at 555 N Main St. on a 0.28-acre lot that used to contain a single family home.
