The CapX2020 project team has narrowed the route options for the Red River-St. Cloud project, which runs through Douglas County.

Open houses have been scheduled to take comments and feedback about route options that will be proposed in the upcoming Minnesota Route Permit application, which will be filed in the fall.

North Dakota route options will be developed in 2010.

The open houses will include maps that display the route options.

The public is invited to stop by anytime during the open house to provide comments on the route options. No formal presentation is scheduled.

The open house in Alexandria will take place today, Wednesday, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Broadway Ballroom, 115 30th Avenue East.

This line is one of three 345-kilovolt transmission lines proposed by CapX2020, a joint initiative of 11 transmission-owning utilities in Minnesota and the surrounding region.

The initiative is designed to expand the electricity infrastructure to ensure continued reliable service, meet the growth in electricity demand and support renewable energy expansion, according to CapX2020 leaders.
