Bucyrus - Shelby Improvements Project

    The Bucyrus - Shelby Improvements Project involves rebuilding about 15 miles of power line and building about 10 miles of power line.

    Company representatives plan to update, supplement and obtain new easements where necessary. Improvements reduce the likelihood of power outages and speed recovery of service when outages occur.

As a result of the social distancing recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we held a virtual open house in May. After reviewing input from landowners, company representatives announced final line route plans for the new power line. Right-of-way agents are discussing plans with landowners.
