Reconstruction to begin on Paris-Albers transmission line

PEWAUKEE, Wis. – American Transmission Co. this month will begin the reconstruction of approximately 12.5 miles of 138,000-volt transmission lines in Kenosha County. The Paris-Albers Rebuild Project runs from the Paris Substation, located in the towns of Paris and Somers, Wisconsin, to the Albers substation in the City of Kenosha, Wisconsin. The existing transmission line was originally built in 1947, and this rebuild will allow the system to meet current and future electricity loads.

The construction is expected to be complete in early 2015, with an estimated cost of $11.5 million. Landowners along the right-of-way have been informed of the project, and ATC is working with them to access the right-of-way through their property if necessary.

Additional details are available on the PSC’s website under Docket No. 137-CE-174. A map of the proposed project and additional information can be found at www.atc-projects.com.
