Winchester Area Improvements Project

    Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in eastern Indiana. The project involves:

    • Updating about 1 mile of electric transmission line
    • Expanding Anchor Hocking Substation near the intersection of East North Street and North Plum Street
    • Upgrading Winchester Substation at the corner of West Ben Street and West Ann Street

    The project increases electric reliability in the area. Company representatives plan to rebuild some sections of the power line in the existing right-of-way, which could require updating or supplementing current easements. Other sections of the project may include re-routes that would require new easements.

    • I&M proposed a route for the 1-mile power line in January 2021
    • I&M hosted a virtual open house to introduce proposed study segments and answer questions related to the project at the end of 2020
    • I&M announced the Winchester Area Improvements Project in November 2020
