Final pieces nearly in place for Washington Island electrical cable

By Terry Kovarik

 

The end is almost in sight for the new Washington Island electrical power connection with the mainland. The new cable replaces an electrical line that failed in spring. Washington Island Electric Cooperative Manager Robert Cornell says the final pieces of the project, two reels of cable, will be shipped to the island this weekend.

 

 

 

Once the barge arrives, Cornell hopes the project will be finished in early December. That timeline, however, is dependent on the weather.
