Hopedale - Dillonvale Transmission Line Rebuild Project

    AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades in Harrison and Jefferson counties. The project involves rebuilding about 15 miles of 69-kilovolt transmission line by replacing wooden poles with steel poles and upgrading local substations. The project improves electric reliability by replacing aging infrastructure and speeding recovery of service when outages occur.
