New underground electrification network using three-phase cables, Sector 1: St-Jean-des-Piles entrance to Rivière-à-la-Pêche, La Mauricie National Park.

The project is part of the organization's desire to replace the overhead electrical network in the Rivière-à-la-Pêche sector and eventually replace the combustion power supply systems that supply the Lac Édouard sector and the Wapizagonke-Nord sector. The first phase of the project consists of burying in the shoulder of the promenade road, two three-phase electric cables on the east side of the road from the St-Jean-des-Piles entrance to the Rivière-à-la-Pêche sector and removing aerial supply currently present near a trail system west of the parkway.
