Indiana Michigan Power announces Transmission Line Project in South Bend, Niles in 2025

Representatives with Indiana Michigan Power announced plans to invest $41 million for the Transmission Line Project in South Bend and Niles.

The project involves the following planned improvements:

  • Rebuilding about four miles of power line from the FourFlag Substation in Niles to the Indiana State Line
  • Rebuilding about eight miles of power line from Stateline Road to the South Bend Substation on Edison Road
  • Upgrading the University Park Substation off of Indiana State Road 23

During the project, crews will replace aging poles and wires with modern equipment.

Improvements are expected to accomplish a number of tasks, including reducing the likelihood of extended power outages.

Construction is set to begin by spring of 2025 and finish by early 2026.
