September 12, 2011 | 8:01 p.m. CDT
City officials are responding to the increased demand for electricity in south Columbia with several proposals for new power line routes. Proposed primary routes connect electrical substations while proposed secondary routes connect primary routes. The maps show option B, which aims to connect the Mill Creek substation with 69 kilovolt lines along the existing 69 kilovolt line route from the Grindstone substation to the Hinkson Creek substation. The option also connects the McBaine substation to the Perche Creek substation through a 161 kilovolt line routed along the southwestern periphery.
