ComEd will hold several open-house meetings in January to discuss a planned transmission line along the Elgin O'Hare Expressway through DuPage and Cook counties.

The new line will run between the Itasca substation at Prospect and Thorndale roads and a substation in Bartlett. The 138 kilovolt line will run approximately 9 miles, with monopole towers between 140 and 170 feet in height.

ComEd said the goal of the project is to provide better service in the far western suburbs and improve maintenance efficiency so the company can bring service back up more quickly after bad weather.

ComEd will need approval for the line from the Illinois Commerce Commission.

The meetings will be held 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday at the Schaumburg Park District Community Recreation Center's Renaissance Room, 505 N. Springinsguth Road, Schaumburg; 4-7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14, at the American Legion, Post 1084, 334 E. Maple Ave., Roselle; 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 19, Schaumburg Park District Community Recreation Center's Renaissance Room; and 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at the American Legion in Roselle.

If approved, the project is set to be completed by summer 2018.
