The Midwest Transmission Project
The Midwest Transmission Project is a partnership project being accomplished by Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) and the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD). This Project consists of the planning, routing and construction of a new 345-kV transmission line from KCP&L’s existing Sibley Substation located near Sibley, Missouri connecting to the new Mullin Creek Substation located south of Maryville, Missouri and on to OPPD’s existing Substation 3458 located at their Nebraska City Power Station south of Nebraska City, Nebraska.
Before the Midwest Transmission Project is built, a routing study will be conducted to determine the best route for the project. The routing process involves evaluating several criteria, including residences, businesses, land use, wetlands and other natural resources, as well as public input. The Midwest Transmission Project encourages public participation and transparency through a public involvement process that seeks input from area residents, community leaders, landowners and other stakeholders. This is currently being done through one-on-one meetings, an advisory group, local leaders meetings, community presentations, public meetings, this project website and local news media. This website has been developed to keep stakeholders informed and engaged in the public involvement process. We encourage participation and value your input.
