Central Maine Power's corridor in Liberty runs approximately 4 miles from the town border with Washington just north of South Liberty village, northeast and roughly parallel with the Plains Road to the Appleton town line. Currently, a 345 kV line runs through the corridor on two-pole wooden H-frame structures that are typically 75 feet high.

The project in Liberty will involve the construction of a new 115 kV transmission line within the existing corridor on H-frame structures like those that already exist within the corridor, typically 75 feet in height. The new structures will be 100 feet to the north of the existing line. Some clearing will be necessary between the existing structures and the northwest edge of the right-of-way in order to place the new H-frames, but all clearing will be on CMP’s existing property.

In addition, two 345 kV H-frame structures in CMP's corridor will be replaced near Fishtown Road
