Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is investing $9 million in improvements to the electric transmission system in central Indiana. Upgrading the existing 34.5 kV transmission line to a more efficient and reliable 69 kV line system strengthens the aging electric infrastructure of the area to ensure safe, reliable power for homes and businesses.
The line connects the Deer Creek Substation on the south side of Marion to a substation south of Summitville. The line is being constructed within 15 miles of I&M's existing right-of-way corridor, where possible. I&M is working with landowners to acquire additional easements as needed for the upgraded line.
Spring 2017: Construction of the Deer Creek – South Summitville 69kv transmission line was completed October 2015. We are now finishing the distribution under build portion. The project is expected to be completed this summer.
