Decatur Area Transmission Line Rebuild Project

    Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) plans to strengthen the electric transmission system in northeastern Indiana. The proposed improvements in Adams County involve rebuilding about 2.25 miles of 69-kilovolt (kV) power lines. Plans call for rebuilding most of the transmission line in the existing right-of-way, some changes will be necessary to accommodate construction. These improvements increase reliability, reduce power outages and speed recovery when outages occur.
