AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers in Pike County. The East Beaver - Buckeye Transmission Line Rebuild Project involves updating about 4.5 miles of power line to increase electric reliability in the area. Plans call for rebuilding the power line in the existing right-of-way, although company representatives might need to acquire new or supplement current easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.
AEP Ohio announced the proposed East Beaver - Buckeye Transmission Line Rebuild Project in Summer 2020.
Construction involves installing steel, single-pole structures approximately 70 feet tall.*
Right-of-Way Width: Approximately 60 feet*
* Exact structure, height and right-of-way may vary
