The Cross Texas Transmission (CTT) 345kV Transmission Line Project was completed by Great Southwestern Construction and is one of MYR Group’s largest projects to date. The two-year, $217 million project is part of the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ), which was designed to move wind-generated electricity from West Texas and the Texas Panhandle to densely populated areas such as Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antonio.
The project involved construction of 235 miles of double-circuit 345kV transmission line across the Texas Panhandle. The 1,400 structures included a mix of lattice and monopole steel towers ranging from 140 to 200 feet tall. Under the project contract, Great Southwestern was the prime constructor, responsible for most of the material procurement, all ROW construction, foundations, structure and wire installation, and restoration.
