ComEd's Gateway Project meeting is today

SYCAMORE – ComEd invites the public to an open house meeting today about the utility’s Grand Prairie Gateway Project, a proposed high-voltage power line that will stretch from Byron east to Wayne.

The meeting is scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, 1350 W. Prairie Drive, in Sycamore. The utility will present the proposed routes for the power line and also be available to answer questions about the path, support structures and next steps in the process, which requires the project be approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission.

This is the third round of public meetings about the new power line, which ComEd says is necessary to relieve congestion on the power grid, preventing power losses and rising costs for electricity.

ComEd plans to file a request for approval of the new power line before the end of the year, the company said in a news release. The Commerce Commission would have about eight months after the application is filed to announce its decision.
