ATC to present final route for Chandler-18th Road Project

Open house scheduled for Feb. 1

DE PERE, Wis. – A final route has been identified for American Transmission Co.’s proposed six-mile, 138-kilovolt transmission line in the Escanaba area. The route will be discussed at a public open house on Feb. 1, 2012.

“We very much appreciate the willingness of local landowners and officials to work with us on siting this project,” said David Hovde, local relations consultant for ATC. “The new line will greatly improve electric reliability in the area.”

The new line will follow a route from ATC’s Chandler Substation northwest of Escanaba to a new substation located on NewPage mill property. To view a map of the project, visit

ATC representatives will staff the open house between 2 and 6 p.m. at the Danforth Place, 4989 Danforth Road, on Wednesday, Feb. 1. No formal presentation is planned; interested individuals should drop in as their schedules permit.
