MonroeArea Transmission Line Rebuild Project

Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) representatives plan to strengthen the electric transmission system in eastern Indiana. The proposed improvements in Adams County involve rebuilding about 10.5 miles of power line. The project involves rebuilding some sections of line in the company’s current right-of-way. Other sections of the project may include re-routes and require new easements. These improvements would increase reliability, reduce power outages and speed recovery of service when outages occur.

Portions of the line will be built in or adjacent to the existing right-of-way, other areas will require construction in new areas and with new easements.
