MARFA, TX (KWES) - Those living in Marfa will soon see new power lines.

As the population and area continues to grow, new lines are needed to make sure service is reliable.

The project will upgrade less than a mile of an existing line and upgrade the Marfa substation.

The upgrade will also integrate solar-power into the region's electric grid.

Crews will start working this spring and should be finished sometime during the summer.
