LINCOLN – LES has identified a staff-recommended route for the Southeast Reliability Project and will present it at an open house meeting July 23, 2015, at Kloefkorn Elementary School, 6601 Glass Ridge Drive, Lincoln, Nebraska, 4-7 p.m. This is the third and final open house for the project that will install a new overhead 115-kilovolt transmission line to connect a new substation at 76th Street & Rokeby Road to the power grid. This project will support growth and maintain reliability for the southeast Lincoln area.
“LES gathered information from two open houses and ongoing discussions with stakeholders, which was used to help determine this staff-recommended route within the project study area,” said Dan Pudenz, vice president of Energy Delivery. “We’ve reached our final phase of the project and are ready to present the recommended route to the public for their comments.” Any comments received will be considered prior to finalizing the route.
A map of the staff-recommended route, along with an online open house, is available on the LES website, Pudenz said. LES staff plans to present a final recommended route to the LES Administrative Board for approval late summer 2015.
