AEP plans 15-mile upgrade through Henry County

Appalachian Power has announced plans to restart a project in Henry County involving approximately 15 miles of upgraded transmission lines from its substation on Appalachian Drive in Fieldale to its Ridgeway Substation on Old Mill Road near the Virginia-North Carolina border.

The Martinsville Bulletin reports the project was announced just before the pandemic began and has been sidelined until now.

If the project receives approval from the state, construction would begin in the fall of 2023 and is expected to be finished by the summer of 2025.
