AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric service reliability for customers in Adams County. The Stuart-Seaman Transmission Line Rebuild Project involves updating about 29 miles of power line. Plans call for rebuilding the power line in the existing right-of-way, although company representatives might need to acquire new or supplement current easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.
Summer 2023: Construction began in 2021 and concludes late 2024. AEP representatives expect to finish restoration in late 2025.
This project involves the use of steel, H-frame poles.
