A new 7.7-mile (12-km) transmission line between the Canal Substation in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, U.S., and the Dunn Road Substation in the Town of Sevastopol has been placed in service ahead of schedule and under budget by American Transmission Co. (ATC), boosting area reliability of electric supply.

The project, which was approved by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin in August 2010, came in about US$1 million under budget and was placed in service nearly three months ahead of schedule. Final cost of the project is estimated to be $15.8 million. ATC's 10-Year Transmission System Assessment calls for an extension of the line from Dunn Road to Egg Harbor as a provisional project for the future.
