Update: Transmission system restoration in southwest Wisconsin

June 29, 4:55 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. –   Crews are continuing restoration work on two 69-kilovolt lines that were damaged during June 28 storms in southwest Wisconsin.

Restoration efforts are ongoing in the Village of Livingston and an area south of Cobb.

There is a transmission-related power outage in Livingston. Because distribution wires are attached to the poles that are down, restoration is taking longer than usual. The estimated return to service for Alliant Energy customers is Friday, June 30. There are no other transmission outages that are causing power outages for electric customers.

ATC expects to complete restoration work by Saturday.

We are committed to restoring power as soon as possible and working in a safe manner.

If you are in any of these areas, please stay away from downed lines and pay attention to road conditions and closures.
