The city council voted in January 2016 to re-open the discussion, putting a hold on the eight-mile line of 161-kilovolt planned for south Columbia. The council approved the plan, known for years as “Option A,” in 2013 to run from Grindstone Parkway and Highway 63, to a new “Mill Creek” substation built north of Rock Bridge High School, ending at the Perche Creek substation off Scott Blvd.
Ameren Missouri told ABC 17 News on Thursday that “The transmission study for Columbia is currently under review and expected to be complete in in the next few weeks.
