MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Power & Light hopes to add two atomic generators to its Turkey Point nuclear power plant and needs two new power lines to carry the new juice.

One of the lines, with massive poles rising the equivalent of 10 1/2 stories tall, could snake westward, then north along Everglades National Park. The other would hook up along U.S. 1, South Dixie highway, in the Cutler Bay area and follow the landmark roadway north all the way into the City of Miami.

An administrative law judge has been hearing arguments for and against for the last six days – and all the towns along Dixie highway are against.
