AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers in Meigs County. The Hemlock-Bryson Transmission Line Project involves building about 4 miles of 69-kilovolt power line, installing switch equipment and upgrading a substation.
Company representatives identified a proposed line route for the new transmission line in early 2022. Representatives expect construction to begin in summer 2025. Between now and when construction starts, landowners along the proposed line route can expect to hear from Property ROW, LLC, the right-of-way company representing this project.
