Residents Get The Details On Relocating Transmission Line

Oncor representatives met with Burkburnett residents on Monday night to answer questions and hear concerns about the relocation of a large transmission line. Oncor wants to move the line on the north side of the city to the east side.     
The move is necessary to reduce the separation between transmission line obstacles that could affect flight operations near Sheppard Air Force Base.
Oncor's West Region Manager Mike Nieto told Newschannel 6, "It's good for Sheppard, its good for Burkburnett, it's good for the Wichita Falls community because it doesn't hurt the mission of Sheppard Air Force Base."
Officials say construction on the relocation could start as early as June of 2013.
