Description: The two-year, $217 million job is one of MYR Group’s largest projects and part of the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ), which was designed to move wind-generated electricity from West Texas and the Texas Panhandle to densely populated areas such as Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and San Antonio. The project involved construction of approximately 235 miles of double-circuit 345kV transmission line across several counties located throughout the Texas Panhandle. The 1,400 structures included a mix of lattice and monopole steel towers ranging from 140 to 200 feet tall. Great Southwestern was the prime constructor, responsible for most of the material procurement, all ROW construction, foundations, structure and wire installation, and restoration.
