CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Appalachian Power and affiliate AEP West Virginia Transmission Co. are investing $20 million in Cabell and Lincoln counties to improve reliability during the harsh winter months.

The investment in the transmission grid includes a new substation and about 4 miles of transmission line.

Spokesman Steven Stewart said the projects are aimed at reducing the likelihood of power failures through the use of a more modern and robust transmission grid.

Construction is expected to start in 2016 and be completed by the end of 2017.
