Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction has announced it was recently selected by investor-owned utility Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. (OG&E) to build the Woodward EHV Thistle transmission line project. The project will start at the Woodward EHV District Substation, 12 miles south of Woodward, Okla., and run to the Oklahoma/Kansas border about two miles southeast of Hardtner, Kans.

"OG&E is pleased to have Mortenson Construction working on the Woodward-to-Thistle project," says Phil Crissup, OG&E’s vice president of utility technical support. "This transmission line is essential to delivering Oklahoma’s wind potential and improving regional electric system capacity and reliability."

Mortenson says all aspects of construction are currently under way, and construction is expected to be completed in September 2014.
