Power line meeting Tuesday
Placeholder Image

A meeting will be held at Whig United Methodist Church, 7158 Whig Road, about the Cardinal–Hickory Creek power transmission line project and the adoption of a potential power line resolution.

Robert Danielson of Save Our Unique Lands will be the featured speaker. The public is invited to attend.

The Cardinal–Hickory Creek project is a 125-mile, 345,000-volt transmission line to connect electric substations south of Holy Cross, Iowa, and the Town of Middleton through a planned substation in Montfort.

The route of the power lines from Cassville, where the lines will cross the Mississippi River, to Montfort and Montfort to the Town of Middleton will be determined over the next few years, with federal and state approvals required.

One proposed route would go due east from Cassville to the north of Potosi and Tennyson and come into Platteville’s south side, going around Platteville either west and north, or south and east between the Grant–Lafayette county line and Belmont before following existing lines through Rewey and Livingston to Montfort. The other suggested route would go south of Wisconsin 35 and Wisconsin 81, go around Lancaster to the south, and continue northeast to Montfort.
