AEP Ohio representatives plan to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in Adams and Scioto counties. The improvements provide an additional source of electricity to the area to ensure service reliability during equipment maintenance and speed recovery of service during an outage.
The project involves:
Early 2024: Company representatives continue to conduct field surveys. Crews anticipate starting construction in fall 2026.
Spring 2022: Company representatives announced an adjusted final line route between the McDermott and Pipestone substations. Landowners can expect to hear from a representative from Contract Land Staff, the right-of-way agency representing AEP.
The project involves the use of single, steel poles.
