American Transmission Company filed an application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin to rebuild a 20-mile transmission line in Rock and Walworth counties.

The proposed Colley Road-Brick Church project will run from the Colley Road Substation in Beloit to the Brick Church substation in Walworth. The project will also include construction of the new Tiger Substation in Clinton. 

The aging 69,000-volt transmission line will cost about $40 million to rebuild, replacing wooden poles with steel poles and adding new wires.

The project would begin in June 2015 and would be operational by 2018.
