The project will consist of a 230 kV electric transmission line that will interconnect the existing South Acworth Substation and the existing Hawkins Store Road Substation. It will be 7.1 miles long and will be located near Acworth and Kennesaw, Georgia, in northern Cobb County. The transmission line will require a 25 to 35-foot wide corridor adjacent to existing rights-of-way such as roads and railroads. Where the transmission line will not be adjacent to an existing right-of-way, a 100-foot wide corridor will be necessary. The transmission line will be suspended via concrete or steel single-pole structures which will support three conductors and an overhead ground wire. The support structures will average 75 to 80 feet in height and will be spaced approximately 500 to 600 feet apart.
