Paris-Albers Rebuild Project

Project overview

The Paris-Albers Rebuild Project is a transmission line replacement project. Approximately 12.5 miles of 138-kV transmission lines in Kenosha County was replaced to ensure safe and reliable electric transmission operations in the future.

The line runs from the Paris Substation in Paris to the Albers Substation in Kenosha. Additional details are available on the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin’s website under Docket No. 137-CE-174.

The project involved stringing new wires and replacing aging wood transmission poles with new wood and steel poles. No new right-of-way was needed and the new poles were placed within a few feet of the existing poles.

This project was approved by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin in spring 2014. Construction began in September 2014 and the line was placed into service March 13, 2015.
