Hays Energy to Kendall Corridor Transmission Line Upgrade Program

LCRA Transmission Services Corporation is rebuilding an approximately 60-mile transmission line corridor from Hays Energy Substation near Interstate 35 in San Marcos to Kendall Substation near Comfort. This transmission upgrade program includes 10 projects.

These projects will help support the reliability of the ERCOT power grid and allow continued safe and reliable operation of the transmission system. New transmission line structures and conductor wire will be installed.

Latest Update – December 2022

Construction started in late 2022 on the eastern end of the corridor in Hays County moving westward into Comal County. LCRA staff members and contractors will be present along the rights of way, and crews using large vehicles and equipment will be present during construction.
