Update: LCRA’s Zorn to Marion Transmission Line Project

On September 16, 2016, The Public Utility Commission (PUC) of Texas approved the Zorn-Marion project in Gudadalupe county and selected Route 10M. The Zorn-Marion project is intended to address an increase in electrical demand caused by population growth in northern Bexar County and the Interstate 35 corridor between San Antonio and Austin.


After the project was approved, The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) began mailing property owners directly affected by the project Notice of PUC Approval and a copy of the Commission’s Final Order. The LCRA also began contacting the property owners in order to negotiate Right of Entry Agreements and, ultimately, begin construction of the transmission line.

You can find information and updates on the project at the PUC interchange by searching for docket number 45601 at
