Construction continues on the new 345 kilovolt power line in the Rochester area, part of the CapX2020 high power line that will eventually run from Hampton to the La Crosse area.
According to the the CapX2020 Quarterly Newsletter, completion of the segment that will connect with north Rochester is expected to be completed in October.  Four substations are also under construction in Pine Island, Hampton,  and Northwest Rochester as well as Holmen, Wisconsin.
Construction of the CapX2020 line in Wabasha County will begin this month with tree clearing followed by foundation construction in September.  Right-of-way contacts, surveys, and soil investigations in Buffalo and Trempealeau Counties are being conducted as well.
Phase two of the Fargo to st. Cloud portion of the CapX2020 power line project continues between St. Cloud and Alexandria.
