Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for area customers.
The FourFlag Transmission Line Project involves:
The project strengthens the local electric transmission system by replacing aging wire and wooden poles dating back to the 1950s with modern steel poles. The improvements help protect the power line from severe weather impacts and reduce the likelihood of extended power outages.
Company officials expect construction to begin in fall 2023 and conclude in spring 2025.
O.R. Colan (ORC) serves as I&M’s right-of-way representative for this project. If you want to reach out to a right-of-way agent with immediate questions, please contact Laura Griffith at (269) 674-9485 or email@example.com. Right-of-way agents are limiting in-person visits with customers during this process to ensure the public’s safety and health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
