Oncor Electric Delivery is proposing a new transmission line through southwest Denton County. Oncor is considering several different routes, some of which enter west Flower Mound. The proposed Ramhorn Hill-Dunham 345 kV Transmission Line Project will connect two proposed switches, one south of Rhome in Wise County and the other located southeast of the FM 1171 and Hwy 377 interchange.
In November, Oncor contacted property owners within 500 feet of the potential proposed routes. On Dec. 7-8, 2022, Oncor held public meetings about the project.
