Metro South Reliability Project

 
Ameren Missouri is rebuilding approximately 10 miles of 138,000-volt transmission line in St. Louis County and in the City of St. Louis. The line will be rebuilt on existing right-of-way and will connect the Watson Substation to the Lemay Substation, and cross the Mississippi River to a final destination in Dupo, Illinois. The rebuilt line will improve grid reliability, meet local energy needs, and promote cleaner energy sources. The project is proposed to be in service by Winter 2021.

Transmission lines are similar to the interstate highway system in the way they will allow energy from generators to travel short or long distances, as needed, at any given moment.
The line will be rebuilt on existing right-of-way in St. Louis County and in the City of St. Louis. We will be discussing right-of-way with residents and businesses prior to construction. There may be instances where personal property will need to be removed from the right-of-way area prior to construction. A land agent will work through this process with property owners adjacent to the line.
