Construction on the Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission line started in the summer, and is continuing throughout the winter months.
The Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project is going well according to Owen and if everything continues to move forward on schedule there could be lines being strung from the towers near Christmas. Owen said, like any project, there have been some problems along the way, mainly related to weather.
When it comes to the financial burden that could follow a set back like Manitoba Hydro experienced, Owen, said it is too early to tell what the impact will be, but other plans have been put into place to speed up the process. Owen said he is also hoping Mother Nature will cooperate for the rest of the year and bring some colder conditions to the province, as this would help the workers deal with some of the wetter areas more easily.
