INTERLOCHEN, MI (MPRN)-- American Transmission Company is replacing some electrical cables in the Straits.
Last year they were severed and leaked coolant oil.
A state proposal would put new cables in a tunnel with the Line 5 oil pipelines.
But Alyssa Braatz with ATC says that plan is risky.
“Essentially co-locating gas and electricity in the same pipeline is a proposal that hasn’t been particularly vetted,” she says.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has said she is open to a tunnel in the Straits.
