Beverly-Morgan Valley Project

ITC Midwest (ITC) is building a new 345 kV (345,000 volt) electricity transmission line from the Beverly Substation along 26th Street in southwest Cedar Rapids, west and south to the new Morgan Valley substation near Walford. This transmission line will be approximately seven miles in length.

Why is this line needed?

This project was identified to provide additional access to the high voltage electricity transmission system for the Cedar Rapids area, and specifically to serve the industrial load center on the southwest side of Cedar Rapids. This line will also provide additional voltage support and stability, and enable the system to serve increased load growth in the future. Finally, with the permanent shutdown of the Duane Arnold Energy Center planned in 2020, the Beverly-Morgan Valley project will ensure Cedar Rapids has a new connection to the high voltage transmission grid and access to electricity generation sources.
