Northern Pass claims northern 40-mile route is about 99% complete

October 10, 2012
MANCHESTER — "We're feeling very good about the progress we have made toward establishing and proposing a new route in the North Country," reported Martin Murray, PSNH's spokesman for the proposed Northern Pass Transmission (NPT) line in a Monday morning e-mail exchange. "Our aim has been to establish a route that has as little impact as possible."

NPT is seeking a 40-mile right of way from the US-Canada border where no ROW is now available to the substation in Northumberland.

"We've worked successfully with property owners on easement agreements or land (purchases), and last week we told financial analysts that the project has acquired, or has under agreement, about 99 percent of the property necessary to announce a new proposed route," Murray said.

"We expect to amend our permit application at the U.S. Department of Energy by the end of the year and announce a new proposed route in the North Country."
