The Omaha Public Power District has scheduled three public meetings to discuss its need for easements so a high-voltage transmission line can be built in southeast Nebraska.

The 180-mile line will eventually run from a substation at OPPD's Nebraska City station to a substation near Sibley, Missouri. The district must negotiate with property owners to acquire easements in Otoe, Nemaha and Richardson counties. Construction would begin in summer 2015.

The first meeting is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City. The second goes from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Falls City Middle School gym and the third is 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the county fairgrounds 4-H building in Auburn.
