The Empire State Line will boost the local economy by creating jobs and generating additional revenue for Niagara and Erie counties. Located primarily in existing utility rights-of-way (approximately 98%) to minimize any disturbance to landowners, the project will utilize a pole design that will enable the new poles to better blend in with existing infrastructure.
