AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers in Monroe County. The Lamping-Woodsfield Transmission Line Project involves building about 10 miles of 69-kilovolt transmission line and upgrading a substation.
The project involves:
Company representatives plan to build the power line in an approximate 60-foot right-of-way corridor and plan to acquire new property easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line. Crews are expected to begin rebuilding the line at the beginning of 2021 and conclude in the summer of 2023.
Summer 2023: AEP Ohio representatives anticipate construction to begin soon.
Summer 2020: At AEP Ohio, we are committed to keeping our customers and employees safe and healthy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the social distancing recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we invite you to join us for a virtual open house to learn more about the project and share your input on possible route options for the new power line. Please provide comments through the "Contact Us" link. Please share your input by July 10.
