Our goal at Duke Energy is to provide dependable power to the communities we serve. To help keep that commitment, we are building new transmission lines in Bloomington, Ind. to help meet the growing demand for electricity and to adequately serve the city. The new power lines will feed three substations in a 3.3-mile transmission corridor and provide a continuous, enhanced reliable flow of energy for you and your community. Our goal is to minimize impacts to nearby homes, businesses, the environment and cultural resources during construction.
The Bloomington Rogers Street – 11th Street – Dunn Street Reliability Project will enhance our ability to provide safe and reliable energy to homes, businesses and other community facilities in the Bloomington area.

The Bloomington Rogers Street – 11th Street – Dunn Street Reliability Project includes construction of new transmission lines in a 3.3-mile transmission corridor, connecting three substations, to provide a continuous, enhanced reliable flow of energy for you and your community.
This project will help provide a continuous, enhanced reliable flow of energy for you and your community.
With a stronger, more resilient grid, this transmission improvement project will directly benefit electric customers in Bloomington with improved reliability. The project will also help minimize the risk and duration of customer
This project is being completed in phases. Phase 1 was completed in 2019. Phase 2 and 3 construction is anticipated in 2023. Work is expected to be complete by early 2024.
Engineers and planners use growth and energy-use projections, as well as continuous monitoring of the electric system, to identify areas for improvements to the system. Since it can take several years to plan, develop, engineer and construct a project, we begin the process in advance to help ensure the new facilities are in place and ready to meet customers’ energy needs.
Vegetation management, including trimming and removal, will take place prior to construction and as needed throughout the life of the project. If more substantive clearing is needed on specific properties to safely install the transmission line, Duke Energy representatives will proactively contact property owners in advance of the work.
No electric service disruptions are anticipated as part of Phase 3 of this project. If your electric service will be disrupted during Phase 2 of the project, advance notice will be provided.
