Construction of a high-voltage transmission power line in western Kansas is expected to be completed by November, six months ahead of schedule.
ITC Holdings says the line it is building from Spearville to the Nebraska border will be running by the end of the year. It also is expected to be under budget.
The Salina Journal reports the transmission line will connect another transmission line running from Axtell, Neb., to the Kansas border.
And ITC spokesman Joe Kirik says the Spearville-to-Axtell transmission line will be connected to a new line called the V-Plan, which will run from Medicine Lodge to Spearville. Construction on the V-Plan is expected to start in November.
