Group opposed to transmission line meets tonight

MENDOTA – Houston-based Clean Line Energy Partners wants to run a 500-mile, high-voltage transmission line through northern Illinois. Block Rock Island Clean Line wants to stop that from becoming a reality.

The group meets tonight at the Mendota Civic Center, 1901 Tom Merwin Drive. Registration starts at 6 and the meeting follows at 7 p.m.

One of the possible routes, which is designed to connect wind farms in the middle of the country with Chicago and population centers farther east, runs through Lee and Whiteside counties, just north of Prophetstown, before running south a bit beyond Harmon.
