AEP Ohio plans to strengthen the electric transmission system in the Dublin West Innovation District. This project requires Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) approval. Additional information, including a timeline, is available online at https://www.aeptransmission.com/ohio/WestDublin/
On Monday, December 2, 2019, Dublin City Council voted to approve a route for AEP to present to the Ohio Siting Board. The route follows Shier Rings Road from the east toward the future University Boulevard and sweeps northward just west of the Dublin Service Center up to Eiterman Road. (The route is labeled “Overhead Route Option 3 – New” and illustrated in blue in this presentation.)
Along with their “yes” vote, Council directed staff to get estimates for burying an approximately 1,500-foot section of the new transmission line along University Boulevard. The rest of the line would remain above ground. Council also asked Dublin staff to explore ways to move the route even farther to the north and away from the residential neighborhoods. That route could serve as another option if undergrounding that portion of the route proves cost prohibitive or otherwise unattractive.
