CAP-X 2020 project moves forward


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Plans are moving forward on the proposed CAP-X 2020 power line project.

Rochester Public Utilities is a partner in both the LaCrosse and Brooking's projects and has agreed a sub-station should be built in Hampton, a middle point for the power lines.

This is only a small step in the overall project, every electrical company within the project must approve the agreement before the next step.

There are still a lot of unanswered questions, including a few routes the transmission line could take connecting Hampton to La Crosse. At this time a judge has still not ruled on an exact route.
