The city of Black River Falls requested some changes to the easement for the ATC Badger Coulee Transmission Line that is going through parts of Black River Falls at the monthly Common Council meeting Tuesday, Aug. 1.

The ATC Badger Coulee Transmission Line project is a 180-mile line that stretches from Holmen to Blair and then across to Black River Falls and then follows Interstate 94 to Dane County. The line is expected to be operational in the fall of 2018.

Most of the changes centered around section six of the power line that stretches between Black River Falls and Blair, including a segment that goes past Skyline Golf Course.

“I had a conversation with the management of Skyline because its easement goes right over part of hole number six.
