About The Valley: Three Corners Connector

Three Corners Connector held an open house to meet with local landowners and community leaders on Wednesday, Jan. 11 in La Junta.

The Three Corners Connector Project will cost $1.5 Billion and Connect the Eastern and Western Power Grids by Running a 3,000 Mega-watt Transmission Line (up to 300 miles) through Southeast Colorado. The Grid United - Three Corners Connector offices are at 502 Colorado Ave. in La Junta.

The project passes through Pueblo, Otero, Bent, and Baca Counties in Colorado, then through Cimmaron and Texas Counties in Oklahoma and completes the connection in Guymon.
