Construction of a 345/138 kV transmission substation in rural Troy, known as Jarvis substation, is already underway, reports River Bender.

In Collinsville, construction has started on a new 138 kV substation, known as Kren substation, adjacent to the company’s East Collinsville Substation on Clay School Road.
