    Workers with Vaughn Industries install a new transmission pole on Martin Luther Drive for AEP on Monday. AEP is replacing an existing double-circuit 34.5-kilo­volt transmission line between Spy Run and Robison Park substations with a new double-circuit 138-kilovolt transmission line. The line is being constructed in approximately 6.4 miles of existing right of way. Improvements will update the existing transmission system that has been in place since the 1940s. The system must be updated in order to meet the region’s growing demands for electricity.
