Muddy Creek to Ord

Project Status:

Construction began on the east end in January 2017. Drivers in the Muddy Creek to Ord area will see more heavy trucks on the roads and are reminded to be safe and prepare for slower traffic. Right-of-Way agent, Todd Muehlich, will be contacting landowners prior to construction crews entering their property.

The project field office located at 1518 J Street, Ord will be closing February 20th. Any project related questions can be directed to Todd Muehlich, 402-612-5882.

Project Overview:

NPPD plans to construct a 115,000-volt electric transmission line from a new substation, to be called Muddy Creek and located near an existing transmission line east of Broken Bow, to an existing substation near Ord. The line is estimated to be 40 miles in length. This transmission line project will address voltage and loading issues in the immediate area and meet the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s Reliability Standards.

Public Involvement Process:

NPPD used a comprehensive public involvement process during the siting of this transmission line. Three rounds of public open house meetings were held, followed by a public hearing in August 2015. Public input was encouraged throughout the entire process.

During this project, NPPD met with area landowners; local, county and state government officials; and representatives of the appropriate regulatory agencies within the respective project area and communities.
