Upgrades are coming to an electric transmission line in northern West Virginia to improve electric service reliability and reduce the likelihood of power outages. The Brues - Glendale Heights Transmission Line Project involves rebuilding about 6 miles of 69-kilovolt transmission line in Ohio and Marshall counties.
Although most of the work will take place in the company's existing right-of-way, new easements may be required in some areas.
Construction involves building steel lattice structures about 110 feet tall and located within an approximate 100-foot wide right-of-way corridor. Work begins in fall 2019 and concludes in fall 2021. Early estimates show this is an approximate $19 million investment.
Landowners along the line route will be contacted in the coming weeks by a right-of-way agent with ORC Utility & Infrastructure Land Services, which is representing AEP during this project. ORC will work closely with you to discuss field activities, easement acquisition and construction. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Tony Savage, Lead O.R. Colan Contract Right-of-Way Agent, at 614-852-7221 or at email@example.com.
