The Clear Crossing Substation Project is located in Haskell County, Texas, approximately 60 miles north of Abilene, Texas. The overall project limits encompassed 285 acres for a laydown yard parcel and a 345 kV electric transmission substation parcel that were constructed in two separate phases. The laydown yard pad area and substation pad area are approximately 55 acres and 40 acres, respectively. The project work included the reconstruction of a 1.3 mile county road that provided access to the project parcels for construction and operations.

This project is one of many that are part of a major expansion of electric transmission lines and substations into areas of north, central, south and west Texas to maximize the service efficiency of power grids.
