Has Towers In Interstate Project '•' • ''• - ">' . y-.:- One of Indiana and Michigan's 793 towers. As one travels across the county and from one city-to another they can.not miss seeing the huge power towers being erected with wires stetched a quarter of a le between each tower. Tipton County is only one of several counties • which has the glistening wires'and V-shaped towers stretching across farmland. As one travels across the state all the way from Madison on the Ohio River, near North Vernon, west of Greensburg, north on the eastside of-Noblesville, up. West of Elwood, -west of Converse and east of Peru, they will pass mile after mile of shiny wire until it reaches South Bend. . The inch and a half transmission wire held intact by support towers made of aluminum and shaped like a giant V supported by guy wires in the ground 135 feet below is the first seg- . ment of Indiana and Michigan Ele- .ctric Co.'s 765,000 volt line. The line are expected to be completed by February and will carry power for electric trains to factories into the 1980's. A second segment will go out of South Bend to be southeast past Fort Wayne and join a transmission, system being built by the Ohio Power Co. A third segment will go into Illinois south of Chicago. Another branch will go north toward Lake Michigan where it will connect with a station near the nuclear power-plant Indiana and Michigan is building near Bridgeman, Mich. The first unit of which will be ready in 1972 with a 1.1 million kilowatt capacity. The second unit will double that output in 1973. • The Indiana and Michigan 200 mile project was started in 1966 with 793 towers, mostly aluminum with some steel. The 765,000 " volt line can transmit 40 times as much power as the more common 135,000 volt lines.. When the lines are eventually united with the American Electric Power System, power will be transmitted in a seven-state area of Ind., Mich., 111., Ohio, Ky., West Va. and Va. B.H.
