Fort Wayne - RichmondTransmission Line Rebuild Project

Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) representatives plan to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in northeast Indiana. The project involves rebuilding about 140 miles of 138-kilovolt transmission line and upgrading two substations. The project increases electric reliability in the area. Plans call for rebuilding the transmission line in the existing right-of-way, although company representatives might need to acquire new easements or supplement current easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.

Field activities are scheduled to begin early this year and continue through spring.
