Chandler-Old Mead Road
American Transmission Co. is proposing to add to and improve electric transmission facilities in the Escanaba, Mich., area. Current facilities are frequently overloaded and subject to low voltages. Existing lines are so critical to maintaining service to customers that it is difficult to take components out of service for maintenance.
ATC is proposing to build a six-mile, double-circuit 138-kilovolt line and a new substation. The line would run from the current Chandler Substation on County Road D11 to a new substation called Old Mead Road.
