Elliott - Strouds RunTransmission Line Rebuild Project

AEP Ohio representatives plan to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in Athens County. The project involves rebuilding about 4 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 supplement current easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.

Project Updates

Landowners can expect information on next steps from Kellis Cunningham of Contract Land Staff, the right-of-way agent representing AEP Ohio on this project. Field activities are scheduled to begin in December and continue through spring.
