In order to ensure reliable electric service in the Kanawha Valley and the surrounding areas, Appalachian Power must make significant upgrades to the current infrastructure. A portion of the proposed upgrades include construction in the Kanawha State Forest. Construction started in January 2015 and will continue through summer 2017 affecting various areas of the Kanawha State Forest.
