Proposed PPL Transmission Line Rebuild Will Be Subject of Meeting

PPL Electric Utilities has announced plans to rebuild an existing transmission power line that is partially located in Lower Saucon Township to help ensure greater reliability for local customers. The 14.6-mile Hosensack-Seidersville transmission line extends from the company’s Seidersville substation in western Lower Saucon to its Hosensack substation in Lower Milford Township, crossing through parts of Upper Saucon Township and Salisbury Township along the way. “The line will be rebuilt in the current right of way for most of the project, but some new right of way may be required in a few locations,” PPL said. “Completion of this project will allow for the continued operation of the line with increased reliability and will decrease costs associated with repairs this aging line has experienced. This work also will increase reliability through improved lightning protection, replacement of wood poles, and other measures.”
