Description: Niobrara is proposing to build a new 69 kV transmission line to provide electrical service to a new substation to be built on the south side of Kirtley Road to provide additional electrical service to the existing ONEOK Gas Compressor Station on the north side of Kirtley Road. Niobrara states the 6.5-mile 69kV transmission line is proposed to start at the Podolak Substation west of Lusk and proceed north/northeast to Kirtley Road just west of Highway 85, where it would tie into an existing 69kV transmission line at that location. The transmission line is proposed to be built in the same general corridor as two other existing transmission lines. The line will go north for about 1.8 miles across the Niobrara River then approximately 4.7 miles northeast until it taps into the existing 69kV line at Kirtley Road just west of Highway 85.

Construction is expected to begin in October 2019 with a planned in-service date of January 2020.
