Power line construction to begin in La Crosse County

Foundation installation for the Badger Coulee Transmission Line Project is set to begin in the La Crosse County area.

Ground crews will be installing foundations this week, followed by pole setting, wire stringing and post-construction restoration. The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.

“We’d like to remind drivers to stay safe, keep their focus on the road, and avoid stopping on highway shoulders to watch construction,” said ATC Project Manager Jacob Valentine. “It’s also important for members of the public to stay a safe distance away from construction activity and vehicles.”

Below is a map of Construction Segment 8 of the project, which runs north to south from the Blair area to Holmen.
