Robison Park - LincolnTransmission Line Rebuild Project


Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan to improve electric service reliability for customers in northeast Fort Wayne.

The Robison Park-Lincoln Transmission Line Rebuild Project involves:

  • Upgrading about 8 miles of 138-kilovolt transmission line
  • Improving the Trier Substation near the intersection of Trier Road and Walden Run

Company representatives plan to rebuild the power line in the existing right-of-way, which may require acquiring new or updating existing property easements. Easements are defined land rights that property owners grant the utility to allow for the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the power line.

The project strengthens the electric transmission system by replacing deteriorating towers from the 1920s with modern steel poles. The upgrade ensures the power line complies with the company’s current structural standards, improves the line’s operational performance and reduces the need for frequent equipment repairs.

Project Updates

Company representatives also plan to offer two online live chat sessions Wednesday, March 24 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST and 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EST.
