Case Number: 16-0702-EL-BTX
Project: Macksburg-Devola 138 kV Transmission Line Rebuild Project
Applicant: AEP Ohio Transmission Company
Location: Washington County
Status: Awaiting Board decision

The proposed Macksburg-Devola transmission line is part of the overall Marietta Area Improvements Project. According to the Applicant, the existing 23 kilovolt (kV) infrastructure has reached an age where it is in need of rebuild and redesign to improve reliability for customers across the region. The approximately 17-mile long Macksburg-Devola transmission line would be rebuilt to 138 kV, connecting the Macksburg Substation to the Devola Substation. The line would likely run through Adams, Aurelius, Marietta, Muskingum, and Salem townships in Washington County.
