GoodlettTransmission Line Improvements Project

The Goodlett - Transmission Line Improvements Project involves the relocation of a portion of the Childress - Quanah transmission line in the Hardeman County Area.

Years of underground activity at an active gypsum mine and natural erosion have compromised portions of the existing line and AEP Texas' Acme Bestwall Substation.

AEP Texas needs to relocate this line due to the considerable reliability and safety concerns these conditions have created.
