AEP Ohio is beginning work to improve electric reliability and support economic development in northwest Columbus and the Dublin area with a Bethel-Sawmill Transmission Line rebuild. AEP Ohio is conducting outreach to each impacted landowner and their neighbors on each side.
AEP will be conducting soil borings along the line within the next couple of weeks as part of this project. Some tree clearing will be necessary for this rebuild. AEP representatives indicated they would provide direct outreach regarding right-of-way and tree removal, with clearing to begin as early as the February/March 2020 timeframe. Anyone affected by right-of-way or tree removal should be contacted directly by AEP.
