Indiana Michigan Power wants to build a new electric transmission line route as part of the Northern St. Joseph County Improvement Project.
It’s a three-mile long transmission and a new substation near U.S. 31 and Adams Road.
I&M says it would provide an additional power source to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of electric service to customers in portions of South Bend and Warren and German townships.
The project will help reduce outage duration times and help with economic growth in.
The utility says the transmission line and substation is needed after reviewing input from landowners. Construction is expected to begin in the Summer of 2023.
