NextBridge Holding Local Open Houses on East-West Tie Line

Wawa residents will have a chance later today to learn more about plans for construction of a major power line between Wawa and Thunder Bay.

More than three months after being designated as the transmitter to build the 450-kilometre, double circuit transmission line known as the "East-West Tie Line", NextBridge is holding a series of "pre-construction open houses" from Wawa to Thunder Bay this week, covering topics such as construction process and timing, what to expect during construction, local benefits, and how to stay connected and informed.

NextBridge has said construction will start in the coming months and end by 2021, planned to progress along the project route in eleven different “work fronts".

Open houses will be held locally at the Wawa Legion from 4:30 to 7:30 this evening and the White River Legion tomorrow evening.
