KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is investing $25 million to upgrade the electric transmission grid in Kendallville.

The Kendallville Area Improvements Project will affect various line routes and improve electric service reliability and upgrade equipment that dates back to the 1960s. They will also reduce the need for frequent equipment maintenance and number of temporary outages when repairs are needed.

The project involves the following updates:

  • Building Henderson Substation located at the intersection of West North Street and Goodwin Place
  • Upgrading Kendallville Substation located at the intersection of South Orchard Street and West
    Lisle Street
  • Upgrading equipment in the Bixler Substation located off Production Road
  • Building approximately 3.5 miles of 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line between the Kendallville
    Substation and the proposed Henderson Substation
  • Building approximately 3 miles of 138-kV transmission line between the proposed Henderson
    Substation and Bixler Substation

I&M representatives mailed letters notifying residents in the project area to inform them of the proposed
line routes. Right-of-way agents plan to work with affected landowners to discuss necessary easements,
access and construction activities.
