*Study segments are multiple alternatives presented to determine a line route. The company does not build all study segments; rather, it selects one route to build.
Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) representatives plan to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in northern Indiana. The project involves:
An upgrade to modern steel poles reduces the need for frequent power line maintenance and improves the lines operational performance. The planned substation upgrades also help to reduce the likelihood of larger, sustained outages.
We are requesting feedback on possible route options for the power line. Your feedback is important to us and helps our team determine a power line route that minimizes impacts to the community and environment.
Company officials expect construction to begin in late 2022 and conclude in late 2026.
July 2021:To confirm that we capture feedback from the entire community, we have extended the feedback through July 30th.
May 2021: 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, particularly on possible route options for the new power line. Provide comments through a "Contact Us" link. Please share your input by June 18.
