PPL Electric Utilities has announced the route for a new, 69 kV power line in Lancaster County, Pa.

The $13.6 million, eight-mile-long North Lancaster-Honey Brook power line will provide an additional source of power to the area to improve reliability and accommodate future growth in electricity demand, according to the utility.

The line will run south from the utility’s planned North Lancaster substation off Route 625 in Bowmansville to an existing transmission line in the Churchtown area.

Construction is expected to start in summer 2015, with the line becoming operational in summer 2016.
