The Dunkirk-Berwick Area Improvements Project involves rebuilding about 25 miles of power line, building about 10 miles of new power line and 3 new substations.
Company representatives plan to update, supplement and acquire new easements where necessary. Upgrades increase the voltage of the power grid from 34.5 kilovolts (kV) to 69 kV and strengthen the local power grid by bringing an additional power source to the area.
Summer 2021: After reviewing input from landowners, company representatives announced final line route plans for the new power line. Right-of-way agents are discussing plans with landowners.
