KCP&L (Kansas City Power & Light) is currently acquiring property for a new 345-kv electric transmission line from the Sibley, Missouri substation to Nebraska City, Nebraska. A new Mullin Creek substation is planned for south of Maryville, Missouri. The new overhead transmission line will be approximately 180 miles long, and is expected to be in use by 2017. Easements across properties will be required to construct the transmission line. Property owners along the route are concerned with the impacts of the project on their property values.
