Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan to improve electric service reliability for customers in Mishawaka.
The Southern Mishawaka Area Improvements Project involves:
Company representatives plan to rebuild the power line in the existing right-of-way, which may require updating existing easements. New easements may be required in the areas where the company identified reroutes or are relocating poles along East 12th Street. Easements are defined land rights that property owners grant the utility to allow for the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the power line.
The project strengthens the electric transmission system by replacing aging wooden poles with modern steel poles. The upgrade ensures the power lines comply with the company’s structural standards, improves the lines' operational performance and reduces the need for frequent equipment repairs.
The power line relocation accommodates the city's plan to widen East 12th Street in this area.
We invite you to join us for a virtual open house to learn more about the project and ask questions.
