Indiana Michigan Power representatives plan to invest approximately $56 million to enhance the electric-transmission network across southwest Michigan.
Company officials plan to build two power lines in St. Joseph and Cass counties, and upgrade two substations to support the region’s electrical need and enhance electric reliability.
The White Pigeon Transmission Line Improvements Project involves building approximately nine miles of 138-kilovolt power line in St. Joseph County and upgrading the Stubey Road substation, located off West Chicago Road near Sturgis.
I& M officials said the company is committed to keeping customers informed about the project.
Community members and landowners in the project area are invited to learn more by attending a virtual open house and providing feedback about potential line routes.
