The next phase of the project, one that Carlsgaard called an “enormous challenge,” will cross the Mississippi. He said it will likely be constructed in February, using barges and helicopters to reach the sites in the river.

“We certainly haven’t done anything like that (before),” he said.

dohAnd this is just the start — what an eyesore it is!

CapX2020 towers, lines stretch across the area

PINE ISLAND – Despite the recent rains, CapX2020 crews continue to make their way across the southeastern part of the state, stretching electric power lines as they go, and expect to be finished with the project on time.

There are about a dozen towers left to be erected between Pine Island and the Mississippi River, and Tim Carlsgaard, a spokesperson for CapX2020, said he expects the foundations for that segment to be finished by the end of the month and the structures and power line stretching to be completed by late October or early November.
