Leander – Round Rock 138-kv LCRA Transmission Line
The LCRA project has completed the public notification phase and will enter the PUC (Public Utility Commission) application phase in the April/May 2016 timeframe. This phase is important to the community as the LCRA will propose 6 or 8 possible routes to connect the Round Rock station (near Sam Bass Road and I35) to the Leander stations. This process could take up to 12 months to complete.
Many communities, including Brushy Bend Park have provided feedback on routes that would potentially impact their neighborhood. The Cities of Round Rock, Cedar Park and Leander have also documented their preferred routing.
The LCRA has set 2019 as a completion date for the project.
