LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Entergy Arkansas has announced plans to begin construction on a new transmission line from Monticello to Reed.

Company officials said Monday that work on the $62.2 million project is to begin later this year.

The project calls for construction of a new 24-mile transmission line- crossing parts of both Drew and Desha counties- and expanded electrical facilities, including a new substation in Reed to move power more reliably and efficiently into the region.

The proposed route includes a transmission line segment to the Monticello Industrial Park, where the company plans a new distribution substation.
