Hydro chooses final preferred route for Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project
Route will run from Dorsey Station northwest of Winnipeg to Manitoba-Minnesota border if approved
Manitoba Hydro has chosen the final preferred route for the $350-million Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project.
The proposed line, which has been in the works for years, would run from Dorsey Station northwest of Winnipeg to the Manitoba-Minnesota border.
The utility has filed an environmental impact statement for the project with the province and is working to secure a license for the line.
But some Manitobans have expressed frustration with the plans, including a homeowner who said it cuts through his brand-new retirement property near Richer, Man.
Hydro is anticipating the line will be working by mid 2020, if it's approved.
