I&M Replaces Giant Electricity Poles in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Indiana Michigan Power is getting to work on replacing the giant electricity poles and power lines that can be seen all across northeast Indiana.

I&M is improving the look and efficiency of the giant electricity poles that can be seen on farms, next to freeways, and in the middle of town.

According to our partners in news at 21Alive, I&M is investing $500 million to replace the old lattice structures with arched electricity poles that are more aesthetically pleasing.

The project involves replacing 22 miles of line on the poles between Roanoke and Robinson Park on Fort Wayne's north side.

I&M says they expect the construction to continue into next year.
