Fort Wayne, IN – Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) plans an approximate $6.5 million investment to upgrade the electric transmission network serving customers in Delaware County in eastern Indiana.
The Yorktown Area Improvements Project involves upgrading about 2 miles of 34.5-kilovolt (kV) transmission line to 69-kV standards. The improvements help ensure reliability for I&M customers and support economic development.
The company plans to rebuild some sections of the power line in its existing right-of-way. Other sections of the project may include re-routes and require new easements.
I&M invites community members and landowners to learn more about the project at an upcoming open house. The public event takes place on Thursday, June 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Yorktown High School Cafeteria, 1100 S. Tiger Drive in Yorktown.
There is no formal presentation, so attendees can arrive at any time to review maps and talk with project representatives. I&M values the opportunity to share information and hear from customers about the project.
Construction is expected to begin in fall 2021 and conclude late 2022. For more information, including detailed project area maps, visit IndianaMichiganPower.com/Yorktown.
