American Transmission Systems, Incorporated (ATSI), a FirstEnergy company, proposes to install a second circuit in the open arm position on the Hayes-West Fremont 138 kV Transmission Line Project which was  approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board in Case No. 12-1636-EL-BTX. By installing the second transmission line circuit at the same time as the initial construction, ATSI will reduce redundancy in the construction process which will minimize construction impacts. Because the second 138 kV transmission line circuit will occupy the open arm position of the structures approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board in Case No. 12-1636-EL-BTX, no additional impacts are anticipated. The Project will be located in Sandusky, Riley, Townsend and York Townships in Sandusky County and Groton, Oxford and Perkins Townships in Erie County, Ohio.
