The proposed transmission line will feature sleek monopoles, rather than the bulky lattice-style towers that were used in the past. It will use an existing public use right-of-way already containing electrical equipment servicing New Jersey Transit's North Jersey Coast rail line. Following necessary approvals, the MCRP will provide approximately 245 temporary jobs while it is being built between June 2017 and June 2019.
