Appalachian Power and its affiliate, West Virginia Transmission Co., plan to make significant upgrades to the transmission system in southern West Virginia to improve electric reliability.
The Boone - South Charleston Project will rebuild about 18 miles of an existing transmission line, relocate a substation and make upgrades to additional substations to provide Boone and Kanawha counties with a modern and robust transmission grid.
The project is the second phase of the larger Boone County Area Improvements Project. Construction is expected to start in late 2018 and last about two years.
Estimated Budget for this phase is $40 million.
Appalachian Power announced a proposed route for the Boone County Area Improvements Project in October. The company's right-of-way contractor, O.R. Colan, will continue to contact affected landowners to discuss upcoming project activities.
