NE and NW Missouri Cooperatives plan 161kv Transmission Project
Project: Zachary-Locust Creek Transmission
NW Electric Power Cooperative and Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative are working to establish the location for a new 161 kV transmission line from Ameren’s (ATXI) Zachary Substation near Kirksville to the Locust Creek substation near Milan. The line may be increased by Ameren to 345kv for a total of 506kv.
This map highlights the areas under consideration for the route:
Meetings were held with property owners on May 16 and 17, 2023.
Once the route is selected, property owners in the path will be asked to sell easements to one or the cooperatives. If agreements are not reached, eminent domain may be used to acquire the easements.
