LITTLE ROCK -- At 4:13 this afternoon, Arkansas Public Service Commission Administrative Law Judge Connie Griffin filed Order No. 32, giving the Southwestern Electric Power Co. the go-ahead to construct a 345 kV power line from the Shipe Road station to the proposed Kings River station, northwest of Berryville.

Griffin's order also gives permission for SWEPCO to construct the Kings River station.

Of all the routes SWEPCO proposed for running the line, Griffin recommended Route 109, which runs from the Shipe Road station north, into Missouri, and then back into Arkansas, through Carroll County -- running just north of Eureka Springs -- to the Kings River station.

The full, 118-page document is available to read here.
