FourFlagTransmission Line Project


Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for area customers.

The FourFlag Transmission Line Project involves:

  • Rebuilding about 5 miles of power line between Pokagon Substation off Barron Lake Road and Lake Street Substation off Lake Street
  • Rebuilding about 3 miles of power line from Lake Street Substation to FourFlag Substation off South 3rd Street

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.
