    Eastern Fort Wayne Transmission Line Rebuild Project

    Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) plans to strengthen the electric transmission system in northeastern Indiana. The proposed improvements in Allen County involve rebuilding about 12 miles of 138-kilovolt (kV) power lines. Plans call for rebuilding most of the transmission line in the existing right-of-way, some changes will be necessary to accommodate construction. These improvements increase reliability, reduce power outages and speed recovery when outages occur.

    This project uses Breakthrough Overhead Line Design® (BOLD®) structures. Developed by AEP engineers, BOLD delivers a more efficient line design and has a smaller footprint than the existing lattice structures currently in use on this line.
