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:
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.
Fall 2023: Crews plan to begin construction for this project in mid-October, although weather or other factors could delay the work. I&M representatives take every precaution to ensure public safety during construction, including minimizing traffic delays. Company officials expect construction to complete spring 2024.
The project involves installing steel poles.
