AEP Ohio plans to upgrade about 4 miles of transmission line in the city of Jackson. The North Jackson transmission line travels through Coal and Lick townships and the city of Jackson in Jackson County.
This project is driven by the economic development in Jackson County and the surrounding area. This new transmission line will allow for new businesses to come into the area and allow existing companies to expand and allow for the opportunity for future growth. Replacing aging equipment with modern structures and wires provides the city with a more reliable power source.
AEP Ohio and its affiliate, AEP Ohio Transmission Company, Inc., cordially invite you to attend a public informational open house. The public informational open house will take place on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at Westview Elementary School, 16349 Beaver Pike, Jackson, Ohio. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.. The informational open house provides opportunity to meet and talk with project representatives. There is no formal presentation. Visitors may come and go at any time during the open house. Residents can offer input, ask questions of project team members and learn more about the new transmission line.
Proposed structures will vary depending on location. The project will use several structure types including steel H-frame and monopoles that will be about 90-feet tall. The structures will be placed in the center of an approximate 100-foot wide right-of-way corridor.
