    Van Zandt County Transmission Improvements Project

    Public viewing of the E Burges project maps has been moved to the Grand Saline Economic Development Corporation building, located at 103 N. Main Street in Grand Saline, Texas. Parties will be able to view the maps through the building’s large plate glass windows. This decision was made for the safety of the communities SWEPCO serves and follows the closure of the Grand Saline Public Library due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Southwestern Electric Power (SWEPCO) proposes a 138-kilovolt transmission line in northeastern Van Zandt County. The project strengthens the local electric system and ensures safe, reliable service in the Grand Saline area.

    The proposed transmission line route begins at a point of connection along an existing SWEPCO line near the Morton Salt Mine and ends about 3 miles east along an existing Wood County Electric Cooperative transmission line.

    The SWEPCO project was made necessary following the removal of infrastructure owned by the Rayburn Country Electric Cooperative.
