The Carrothers-Shelby Transmission Line Project involves rebuilding about 18 miles of 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Crawford, Seneca and Richland counties. Updating the transmission line with modern equipment improves electric service reliability, reduces the likelihood of extended power outages and speeds recovery time when outages do occur.
The majority of the line will be rebuilt within AEP Ohio's existing right-of-way corridor. Additional or supplemental easements might be required in some areas along the line route to ensure the line meets current safety standards.
The line will be built in a 50-foot wide right-of-way corridor, which is necessary to safely construct, operate and maintain the line. Existing wood poleand steelstructures will be replaced with steel single-polestructures that will be about 90-feet tall.
The proposed route was announced on December 5, 2018. The proposed route announcement follows a virtual open house held in August, during which AEP Ohio provided detailed information about the project and encouraged public comment regarding the proposed study segments. Property ROW is serving as AEP Ohio’s right-of-way representative and will work closely with you regarding survey activities, easement acquisition and construction. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Fred Dotson, lead Property ROW right-of-way agent, at 419-651-1661 or at email@example.com.
