Southern Muncie Area Improvements

    Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is developing plans to strengthen the transmission system in eastern Indiana. The proposed improvements in Delaware County would increase reliability, lessen power outages, and speed recovery of service when outages occur. I&M is asking for input from the community and landowners on the proposed study segments that will help determine the line route.

    Project Updates

    Spring 2019: Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) announces the Southern Muncie Area Improvements project.

    A public Open House will be held to gather input from local residents. Representatives from I&M will be available to discuss specific aspects of the project and to answer questions residents may have. Feedback from the community will be gathered from this event and used to help determine the final proposed line route. The Open House will be informal, and can be attended at any time during the evening and is scheduled for Thursday, April 25 from 5:30 PM-7:30 PM at the Muncie Central High School Student Center, 801 N.
