Jones-Onslow Electric Membership Corporation (JOEMC) is continuing its efforts to improve electric service as its current project moves from Surf City into Topsail Beach. The project, which includes replacing old electric poles and replacing worn wiring and other hardware, is an effort by JOEMC to upgrade its service and provide safer, more reliable service to our residents and homeowners. The improvements include upgrading the transmission line to the substation located at North Anderson Blvd. and Sidbury Avenue.
As part of the project it is necessary for JOEMC to clear portions of the right-of-way to have safe access for the personnel and equipment to do the job. The amount of right-of-way to be cleared depends on the circumstances of each pole (i.e. anchor required), however it is the goal of JOEMC to minimize the impact on surrounding properties as much as possible. You can expect some travel delays while the work is underway with lane closures possible.
