The project timeline is subject to change based on weather conditions or unforeseen events.

We’ll notify you in advance with details of any work to be performed on your property. Please be sure we have the best phone number and email address to reach you at AEPOhio.com/Account.

We don’t anticipate the need for outages during these upgrades, but there’s always the possibility that crews might need to take an outage to safely complete work. Please be sure we have your best contact information at AEPOhio.com/Account in case we need to get in touch.

While crews are completing this work, our equipment will be set at a more sensitive setting to ensure their safety. This can cause brief power outages for some customers in the area. Be assured our goal is to get the power back on as quickly as we safely can when this occurs.

Temporary lane closures along Kenny Road may be needed throughout the construction process. Our construction crews will coordinate with local traffic control to minimize the impact while working to ensure safety for the community and our crews.
