AEP constructing service center on Lima’s Cole Street

LIMA — American Electric Power is constructing a 44,800 square foot transmission service center near the Allen County Juvenile Detention Center and Sanitary Engineering Department on North Cole Street.

AEP purchased the 36-acre plot of land in January and started construction in September. The project is expected to extend into late 2020, AEP spokesman Scott Blake confirmed to The Lima News.

The service center will house equipment and 36 AEP employees responsible for maintaining the area’s high voltage transmission grid.
