    Moundsville Area Transmission Rebuild Project

    American Electric Power and its affiliate, West Virginia Transmission Co., plan to increase reliability to customers by upgrading aging transmission infrastructure in Moundsville and Marshall County.

    The Moundsville Area Transmission Rebuild Project consists of rebuilding about 11 miles of transmission line and making upgrades to multiple substations along the project route. Construction is expected to start spring 2018 and be completed by mid-2019. Majority of the work will be done in or adjacent to the existing right-of-way. The estimated budget is $50 million.


    Project Update

    7/26/2019 - Construction is scheduled to conclude at the end of August 2019. Once the lines are energized, right-of-way agents plan to work with landowners in the project area to restore their property.

    9/19/2018 - The Moundsville Area Transmission Rebuild Project is under construction. Crews are working to rebuild the 11 miles of transmission line and make upgrades to existing substations. The project is expected to be complete by mid-2019. 

    3/28/2017 - Appalachian Power held an open house at John Marshall High School to introduce study segments, answer questions related to the project and gather feedback from the community. The company will utilize information gathered at the open house to determine a final line route.
