AEP Ohio
Electric System Maintenance Coming to New Philadelphia

June 12, 2017

Electric system maintenance by AEP Ohio, an American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) company, and AEP Ohio Transmission Company, Inc., may affect New Philadelphia motorists traveling now through November 2017.

Beginning later this month, AEP Ohio will begin replacing aged wood structures with new poles to continue to ensure the reliability of the electric service to homes and businesses in central Tuscarawas County.

AEP Ohio will perform maintenance on about two miles of transmission and distribution power poles and lines. Much of the work will take place adjacent to roadways listed below within the right-of-way.

To allow crews to safely perform this work, portions of roads may be closed or reduced to one lane during construction activities. AEP Ohio will work with the city of New Philadelphia, state agencies and first responders to ensure the work can be completed safely with as little inconvenience to motorists as possible.

AEP Ohio appreciates your patience and cooperation and will continue to keep you informed. To ensure the safety of all, please be especially cautious in construction zones and along detour routes. For more information about the location of construction activities, please visit our project's website at AEPOhio.com/NewPhiladelphia.
