Mark Twain Transmission Project

About the Project


Ameren Transmission Company of Illinois (ATXI) proposes to build a 345,000-volt transmission line that will run from Palmyra to Kirksville and then north to the Iowa border.

The Mark Twain Transmission Project is part of a Multi-Value Project (MVP) that was approved in 2011 by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), a regional transmission organization providing regional grid management.

The Mark Twain Transmission Project is directly aligned with Ameren's goals of providing reliable, efficient and environmentally responsible energy.
