Power Line Helicopter Work 20 May 13

Construction crews will be using helicopters to install power lines in the local area this week. The work involves the new CapX-2020 high-voltage lines that have been constructed across the state over the past year. The helicopter work this week will be centered around the Minnesota River near Redwood Falls, and is expected to get underway today (MON). Officials say there will be occasional traffic stoppages on Brown County Road 5 and Renville County Road 3 as the wire is pulled across those roads. The closures are expected to be brief. The Renville County to Scott County segment of the Cap-X lines is scheduled to be energized this summer, and the Renville to Lyon County segment early next year.
