AEP Transmission and AEP Texas representatives plan to upgrade the Aransas Pass - Seawall 69-kilovolt electric transmission line. The project involves rebuilding about 3 miles of power line and upgrading the Aransas Pass and Seawall substations to increase electric reliability for the area and strengthen the local power grid.
The project involves:
AEP crews and contractors performed preliminary surveying work in Summer 2020 within the utility's right-of-way along and adjacent to the line route. This work allowed AEP to more accurately determine water table levels and the location of existing utility infrastructure.
Typical Distance Between Structures: 300 feet
Typical Structure Height: 95 feet
* Exact structure, height and right-of-way may vary
