PSE selects a route option for the Missing Link!

PSE launched the Missing Link Project in fall 2019 and committed to engaging the public throughout the routing process to understand community values and interests around the new transmission line. After a technical analysis of the possible route options connecting Murden Cove and Winslow substations and considering feedback gathered during the routing process, PSE has selected Route Option A for the new transmission line.

Welcome

Overview

As part of our solution to improve electric reliability on the island, we’re planning to build the new "missing link" transmission line between the Murden Cove and Winslow substations. This new transmission line is a critical component of PSE’s plan to improve electric service reliability, reducing the frequency and duration of power outages for customers on Bainbridge Island.

It’s our goal to understand community values and interests around the new transmission line, so we launched a community engagement process to gather input. To help reach that goal we’re asking for the community’s feedback on the route options under consideration.
