Potential Routes

During planning, ITC recognized the need to create 40 miles of line extending from the existing Nelson Road substation to the existing Oneida substation. ITC has identified potential route options that would meet the project purpose.

The initial analysis determined locations that minimize impacts to sensitive resource areas, and would also maximize the use of existing siting opportunities, including existing transmission lines and substations.

The following map uses geographic information system (GIS) technology to allow the agencies and public to view the project area. The intended route can be viewed on aerial imagery illustrating the existing landscape in the region. Please note, this route is conceptual and does not represent final locations or design.
