The existing G-Line was built in the 1930’s. The purpose of the rebuild project is to replace deteriorated electric transmission infrastructure which has reached the end of its useful life in order to provide enhanced storm hardening and reliability. The rebuild will take place within the existing 150 foot wide right-of-way, and the right-of-way will not be widened. The location of the line, which is presently located 25 feet from the western boundary of the right-of-way, will be moved 25 feet in an easterly direction to be 50 feet from the western boundary to lessen risk of storm damage to the line and risk of outages.
