A Closer Look at the New Ameren Transmission Line

The decision that has just been finalized only deals with the stretch that goes through Edgar County, and ends at the Sugar Creek substation. This segment will only briefly go through Clark County. Ameren officials say they worked hard to meet the needs of each and every resident,and believe they have come up with the best plan possible.
A final route of the Ameren transmission line that will run through Illinois has been approved.
   
Now, many are wondering what that means for their homes and property.

Last summer may Clark County residents were concerned that the proposed lines would affect their farms and community, so they petitioned the company to re-route the lines, and were successful.

This final decision will not affect that route.

Those lines that were approved in August will stay the same.

" I know that there were a lot of concerns, and I know that there were many people were frustrated, but really that's the way the process works today, and at the end of the day every voice was heard and I really do believe that the final solution, the final route mitigates impact, and will provide everyone uses electricity with more reliable service," said Ameren consultant Leigh Morris.

Construction on the project is expected to start by the end of the year.
   
Some sections could be in use as early as 2016, with the entire route completed by 2019.
