Indiana Michigan Power is planning to invest nearly $56 million to enhance its electric transmission network across southwest Michigan.
I&M officials announced Tuesday the final line routes for two high-voltage power lines in St. Joseph and Cass counties to support the region’s electrical needs and enhance reliability.
The White Pigeon Transmission Line Improvements Project involves building almost nine miles of 138-kilovolt power line in St. Joseph County and upgrading the Stubey Road Substation.
Company officials said the line will run between the Pigeon River Substation on South Elkhart Street in White Pigeon and the Stubey Road Substation.
The improvements will provide additional capacity to the electric system to support local economic development and rely on steel poles, approximately 75 feet tall.
Project plans call for construction to begin spring 2023 and conclude by late 2025.
