Merced County: Ag /A-1 (Transmission line); City of Merced: Manufacturing industrial/I-H (substation)

Document Description
FYI: Final MID plans to build approximately 13.1 miles of double-circuit 115 kV transmission lines with double circuit 21 kV underbuild and a 115-21 kV substation to connect the existing MID 115 kV lines on SR 99 west of the City to a new substation in the planned commercial and industrial area in the southeastern corner of the City of Merced. The proposed route would follow Franklin Rd south to Rice Rd, turn east and follow Belly Rd, cross SR 99, follow McHenry Rd, turn north, and run along property lines to the substation site on Mission Ave. The project also include undergrounding overhead PG&E distribution lines where they conflict with the MID facilities, raising PG&E 230 kV and 115 kV lattice steel towers near Mission Ave to provide clearance for the MID transmission lines, and undergrounding MID 21 kV lines where crossing PG&E transmission lines.
