Current and upcoming activities

Over the spring and summer, we completed investigative work to help us develop the route and design for the transmission lines. We completed the centerline survey of the proposed route as well as archeological and environmental surveys. We also developed clearing and access plans.

Our proposed route is located on Provincial Crown land. In November 2017, we submitted an application to the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development for a statutory right-of-way for the route with a Licence of Occupation to start construction in mid-2018.

Before construction starts, we will continue with investigative work to confirm geotechnical conditions along the proposed route and prepare for procurement of construction contracts.
