Millwood - HowardTransmission Line Rebuild Project

AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers between Howard and Shelby in Richland and Knox counties. The Millwood - Howard Transmission Line Project involves rebuilding about 36 miles of power line.

Plans call for rebuilding the power line in the existing right-of-way, although company representatives might need to acquire new easements or supplement current easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.
