AEP Ohio Transmission Line Project

In December 2016, AEP Ohio began the Amlin-Cole 138kV Transmission Line Project, which consists of adding a second 138kV transmission line to the vacant position of the existing Beatty-Hayden 345kV transmission line.

This work took place on the large electrical towers along Alton-Darby Creek Rd., which extend north and south through the eastren portion of Brown Township.

The new line improves the electric service reliability in Franklin County and provides another source of power to Amazon. The project covered about 11 miles in Brown, Norwich, Prairie and Washington townships in westren Franklin County.
