AEP Ohio Transco proposes to construct an approximately 13-mile long 138 kilovolt (kv) electric transmission line connecting the proposed Rouse Substation in Monroe County to the proposed Bell Ridge Substation in Washington County. AEP Ohio Transco anticipates building the new transmission line primarily with steel H-frame structures.

The company states that the proposed project would improve service for customers, reduce power outages, and speed recovery of service when outages occur.
