MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin regulators have approved plans for a power line that will run between Alma and Holmen in western Wisconsin.
The three-person Public Service Commission agreed unanimously Thursday to green-light the $201 million project, saying it will increase regional and local transmission reliability.
The commission also settled on a route calling for the line to cross the Mississippi River west of Alma, run through Galesville and end at a new substation just west of Holmen. The line will link to a larger transmission project dubbed CapX2020 to serve Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas.
