Lincoln Park-Riverbend 138-kV Transmission Line Project (Case No. 19-1871-EL-BTX)

Lincoln Park-Riverbend 138-kV transmission line project proposes to construct an approximately 6-mile long 138-kV transmission line that will extend from the existing Lincoln Park Substation to the existing Riverbend Substation. The Lincoln Park Substation and Riverbend Substation are proposed to be expanded to facilitate the installation of new equipment. The project will be located in Mahoning County, Ohio, and is needed to improve the reliability of electrical service to the area. Specifically, the project will reduce the risk of a regional outage, improve voltage stability in the area, and allow for future load growth as new businesses and homes are built.
